Thoughts on Yellow Star by Jennifer Roy
There have been so many Holocaust books written for young readers, that I have to applaud Ms. Roy on telling an unique and amazing story! To be one of twelve children to survive the Lodz Ghetto...Wow! I'm so glad I knew going in that Syvia survived (no spoiler there since you know this on the first page), otherwise I would have been petrified to turn the page. Even knowing the outcome, I still didn't want to turn the page for fear it would describe some friend or family member's death.
Yellow Star is another novel told in verse, perfect for those looking for an excellent example of this format. I'll be highly recommending this to one and all! A rating.
