I remember reading this book at school when I was in 5th or 6th grade. I remember it being a thrilling book detailing one family's struggle to escape from the horrors of the Holocaust.

I read it again recently to see if it would measure up to my childhood memory. I have to say that the book was not as developed in plot and character development as I would have liked as an adult, but I could see why I liked it as a child. I believe it is simplistic because it is written for a younger audience. I believe it seems like it's lacking because we live in a different age now and as an adult I know so much more about what went on during the Holocaust than I did then. I still found it to be an interesting read and I would recommend to a middle school audience.
