Publisher Description

A stunning novel of the Holocaust from Newbery Medalist, Jerry Spinelli

He's a boy called Jew. Gypsy. Stopthief. Filthy son of Abraham.

He's a boy who lives in the streets of Warsaw. He's a boy who steals food for himself, and the other orphans. He's a boy who believes in bread, and mothers, and angels.

He's a boy who wants to be a Nazi, with tall, shiny jackboots of his own-until the day that suddenly makes him change his mind.

And when the trains come to empty the Jews from the ghetto of the damned, he's a boy who realizes it's safest of all to be nobody.

Newbery Medalist Jerry Spinelli takes us to one of the most devastating settings imaginable-Nazi-occupied Warsaw during World War II-and tells a tale of heartbreak, hope, and survival through the bright eyes of a young Holocaust orphan.

This book made me cry😭

It’s an amazing book, and it has a very happy ending. But, if you are one of those people who don’t cry during movies or while reading a book, then I wouldn’t recommend this book. But I really liked it, and I’m a ten year old.

Really good

I originally read this book in middle school and even though I don't remember much from it, I remember I thought it was really good.

Wow

I know a bit about the Holocaust but, The main character was so unrealistic during World War 2. It’s not bad, but the character was horrible!!!
