really liked it

In one word: Humanizing.

I don't think anyone can read this book and not have the way they think about the world and other people changed to some degree. It is a book that is beautifully written and deeply engaging.

This is the story of two young teens during World War II. Marie-Laure LeBlanc, a blind French girl, and Werner Pfennig, a German boy. They are from very different back grounds, but both are incredibly cleaver.

They have several things that connect them through out the story and as I neared the end of the book I began to wonder if their stories would ever directly cross. I'd recommend reading it to find out.
