I had a request from monkygrrl to provide a forum for a discussion of this book. It is a fictional tale set during the Holocaust, but the story is told to us from a very unique perspective-- through the eyes of Bruno, a nine-year-old son of a Nazi Commander. Due to the youth and innocence of Bruno, you may have a lot of questions about what's going on, and the who, and the where, etc.! I would be more than happy to field questions. Also, the reviews I read stated this book for grades 9 and up, so it's not for the younger readers, even though the language may seem like it is.
I also wanted to share that this book has already been optioned into a movie! You can check out the current information here. It's got the actor who played Remus Lupin in the Harry Potter movies as Bruno's father (I think that's who he is playing, anyway!)!
Anyone read it? Monkygrrl, I hope you jump in the conversation soon!
