Read in February, 2012

This is an incredibly powerful book.

After reading the cover, I expected this book to be sort of like a Christmas Carol for a Jewish girl. Ya know, she relives this horrible past and when she comes back to the present finally appreciates the importance of the Seder. I was pleasantly surprised with the ending though. (view spoiler) Basically I loved the linking with the present. I hated that she lost her memories though!

Overall great book.
