Number the Stars Book Review


I just finished reading Number the Stars, by Lois Lowry.  It’s about a little girl’s life during 1943.

Annemarie Johansen and her best friend, Ellen Rosen, think about what their lives would be like if the war came to an end.  They also have many other things to worry about, like food shortages, German troops, and how they’re going to protect the Danish Jews in their town.  Ellen, being Jewish, soon has to pretend to be one of the Johansens to keep from being “relocated.”  How will this impact Annemarie’s life?  Find out in Number the Stars.

I really enjoyed this book, but I would like it a little more if the author went into more detail.

My favorite character in the book is Lise, Annemarie’s older sister.  Sure, she may be dead, but she was very brave.

Happy reading!
