I think it was a REALLY good book! I really like to read about Anne Frank and her best friend, which leads to really liking to read books about the holocaust, which leads to liking this book! Also it was emotional, leading to the perfect book! (for me at least)

A touching story about how much freedom is worth to you.

I liked this book.

This book made me think more about the importance of family.

I thought that this book was one of the best middle-grade Holocaust books that I've read- and I've read a lot of them. It was a quick read, but it managed to convey many important Jewish values inside it's pages.

It was great! All the hardships that Anna went through and she finally made it to Palestine. This book is really exciting I just can't stop reading it. I totally recommend it.

The Sound of Freedom is a really beautiful book. I cried through a lot of it, but in a good way. The author made the characters so real and connecting that you cry over their problems. I would sincerely recommend it, but if you do decide to read it, remember that you will probably cry for at least half the book.

This book was a pleasure to read. All the characters are so vibrant, and I loved the surprising ending. I liked how it really showed how cruel the Holocaust was, and it made me feel a lot closer to my roots in Poland.
