This story is about a young girl who’s name is Lisa Levy and her mother Esther Levy. In 1944 World War 2 was happening, and the Jewish had to flee towns to stay save. Lisa and her mother were both Jewish. Her father was in the war and she doesn’t remember him. Through the book they find out that all the Jewish must be reported but instead they leave town. They move town to town avoiding being captured.
This book was a very short and quick read, maybe for someone just to read if they have a book for that day. I think it was well written and that the pictures were great. After reading this book it tells the reader and myself how hard life was for the Jewish. I think that others should read this if they don’t understand how hard life would have been during the war for them. One thing I didn’t really like or understand was that I think the book ended to quickly.
I give this book a 4 out of 5 even though it was very short. I give this a 4 out of 5 because it was a good short read and tells the story of a young girl that lived through Would War 2. I liked how it was written in a comic way, and with a passage at the end on how she was after the war and what happened to her and her family.

Ms. Landers It is really nice when a book covers a difficult subject, but is written well enough to get past the issues.
