When Roberto sneaks off to see a movie in his Italian village, German soldiers raid the theater and pack them onto a train bound for a work camp. Roberto and his best friend, Samuele, vow to stick together. But Samuele has a terrible secret which, if discovered, could get them both killed.

A good read. I may have wanted a map or something showing me how far Roberto was. I felt like either I had to know more about this time period or to not worry too much. I could feel lost along with Roberto.

Thank you so much for sending this book such a long way. It arrived today, about 2.5 months after entering the postal system.

Update: I enjoyed this story, which told a different aspect of the war I didn't know much about. At times the main character was frustratingly naive/stupid, but he was young.

If you aren't familiar with Bookcrossing, take a few minutes to check out this very cool site. Bookcrossers LOVE books, and more than anything, they love to read books and then set them free for other people to find and enjoy. I would love it if you would leave a journal entry -- you can say where you found the book or how you liked it when you read it.

Happy birthday

Went to post office to pick up a larger package and what do you know, it was the earliest birthday present ever. :D

Thank you so much, this book sounds really interesting. I visited Cracow and Auschwitz last summer, I'm really curious where this book takes me as the horrors happened in so many places.
