This book was amazing!! Kate Breslin has a brilliant style of writing. You can pick up any of her books and they will be your favorite. This book was so powerful, it had me soaring one chapter and crying another. The main characters are wonderful. I really liked seeing Aric change, you could see how hard it was for him to accept that what he had believed in and fought for was wrong. The lessons they both learn change them into better people. And the way they saved the Jews, was thrilling. The book progressed so nicely and everything happened at just the right moment. The translation/explanation of words at the end was a nice touch that really helped. I rate it 5 out of 5. Definitely recommend this book.
