Teen Picks Review: Number the Stars

Filed under: books, teen picks — SCPL Teens @ 5:07 pm

Number the Stars by Lois Lowry
Reviewed by Justin, age 13
Five stars.

What was the book about?
Number the Stars is about two girls, Annemarie and her friend Ellen. Ellen’s family are Jews and live in Holland. Where they live, the Germans take the Jews to concentration camps. Annemarie, her mother and sister take Ellen’s family to their uncle’s house. Their uncle brings Jews from Holland to Sweden to live. Her uncle brings Ellen’s family across the water to Sweden.

Who would you recommend this book to and what would you say to get
them to read it?

I would recommend this book for kids who are 12 and older. I would tell them that it is about a girl and her family helping her friend and her family to safety in Sweden.
