Number the Stars: an excellent and exciting book
le 8 décembre 2016
"Number the Stars" is set in Denmark during World War II. The main characters are: Annemarie Johansen, who is a ten-year old girl and is very brave, and her Jewish friend, Ellen Rosen.
The Nazis decide to relocate all the Danish Jews. The Johansens hide Annemarie's friend Ellen. But, during the night, Nazis come. Ellen says she is Lise, Annemarie's dead sister. However, they understand something has to be done to save all Denmark's Jews.
I really liked this story because I learnt lots of things about history. In addition, Annemarie is very brave. Moreover, when Annemarie's sister, Kirsti, joins in, it is always funny.
I have loved the story but I was disappointed because the end is not very happy. A member of the family who was in the Resistance is executed. Also, I don't know if Annemarie is going to see Ellen again. However, the war ends.
As a conclusion, it is both an interesting and exciting book. At the end, readers are relieved. The novel will appeal to any reader who is interested in World War II or in bravery.
