I buy my nieces and nephews books often. I’m a boring aunt who doesn’t buy toys but I give good books. Imagine my surprise when I got home and my nephew said he brought me a book. It was a library book that he enjoyed and wanted to share with me. I was so proud. So effing proud of my boy.
The book is set during the 2nd world war. Andreas, who has lived in Germany all his life, finds out that his father is half Jewish. This changes everything for a young person who once wanted to join Hitler Youth. While Andreas has to leave the country, for safety reasons, his ‘perfect’ half brother stays in Germany.
I enjoyed reading this book. So proud of my little man.
