Yeah, maybe a 3.5 stars although spending too much time assigning a number to a book seems silly.

Downer of a book, but I enjoyed it. Granted my life is a lot different than a high schooler in post WW2 Germany, but this book makes me not want to sulk on the past.

Parts of the book are a bit clunky (not a great translation?) but there are some pretty parts too amidst the protagonist's emotional swirl.
