Number the Stars by Lois Lowry
Reviewed by Leila
Number the Stars by Lois Lowry was an exceptional book. It's about a ten-year old girl named Annemarie Johansen and her best friend Ellen Rosen. It is set during World War II and Ellen must move in with Annemarie to pretend to be part of the family, but then Annemarie is asked to go on a daring mission to save Ellen's life.
The suspense of the book was the best thing about it. Also, you could see how the Jewish people had to live in order to survive the war. The thing I didn't like about it was that it was a little boring. I sometimes didn't pay much attention to the book and got distracted at times. If you like history, this is the book for you.
Lois Lowry has written many other books and she is a talented author. Number the Stars was one of her Newbery Medal Award books and so was The Giver. Read all her books and you will never regret them.
