Maryam asked:

Is this an appropriate book for an almost 12 years old kid ? He is very interested in World War II and I'm trying to find some interesting and appropriate books for us to read together.

Addison Dixon Ummm. I'd personally say it would probably be best to wait until he was at least 13 or 14. It's a complex story. Number the Stars by Lois Lowry would be good, unless you have already read that. The Hiding Place by Corrie Ten Boom is another good one that can be read when he is a little older (unless you've already read it).
