Really Interesting!

Review by Alma

This book is about a boy named Maurice and his life during the Holocaust. Life is really scary for him, as at the beginning of the book, he's basically just ushered outside his house to another place, without much warning, and from then on, life just gets really strange, he moves to a lot of different places, depending on where is safe and where isn't. I'd recommend this book to anyone who likes historical graphic novels like the PJ Our Way choice Hidden.

Good but way too short -- I read it in 10 minutes!

Review by penguin_lamb12

It was a good book but it was too short and I read it in 10 minutes & it was my first graphic novel 🙀. However it had an interesting storyline & it was cool that the author was writing about their dad (super cute😊)
