Lauren (laurenlb23) | 68 comments I don't know if I have asked about this one before or if I saw it on here before but I did search and couldn't find anything

What I remember:
Narrator is young girl who is rounded up/kidnapped and forced to march along with her grandfather
They are taken to a camp
The grandfather used to be a teacher and the girl is worried that we will be executed for wearing glasses
Although it contained pretty violent subject matter it is childrens book or a YA book. I read it probably 10-12 years ago,

Again I think I have posted about this one before but I don't remember if it was solved /couldn't find it when i searched the feed.

Any help would be great!

I didn't see this query among the threads you started earlier. Here they are:


There is one which was solved, about an Asian girl, but it doesn't quite sound like the book you mention above.

Lauren (laurenlb23) | 68 comments Sounds very similar but I don't think it's the right one. Thanks though!
