Spoiler Alert
This book is a very good book because it centers around the holocaust and talk about a young orphan boy who lives in Nazi occupied Warsaw, Poland. He has no home, no friends, and doesn’t even have a name. He is called many things but most are unlikey a good name. He has to survive on moldy bread, and must live long enough to escape the Ghetto in Warsaw, Poland to find his way to America.

This a a fictional book, This book is very interesting because every paragraph that you read makes you want to read more, its like this book lives on the edge of a cliff and there is always something exciting and heart pounding to read. I completely love the way that Jerry spinelly puts you in this book and makes you feel like an invisible figure that is with the boy the entire time. He also makes you feel terribly sad when the Germans move in and take the Jews away to the camps to kill them.
Milkweed is a fictional book because it talks about almost every reality of WWII for the jews and this story could very well be a true story but it isn’t.
Thanks for reading this.
