I can't find this book anywhere and would love to read it. I have look in all sorts of book shops and libraries and they don't have it where did u get yours from please help!

Have you asked your local library to request the book from another branch?  If they are unable to get a copy for you, the book can be ordered online from any of the major online bookstores.

This is one of the saddest books I have ever read. I have read a couple holocaust books before this one as well. I find it like an interesting, heart-wrenching history book. Read this book and you won't be dissapointed. I promise. This poor girl had to go through so much, it is only fair that you read her book. I can't express how thankful I am that I never(even though I'm a Christian) that I have never had to go through anything that horrid. READ THIS BOOK!!!!!!!!!

this book is amazing. I really recommend it to anyone who would like to further their knowledge on concentration camps and their survivors. This books is captivating. It really takes you on the journey that the author endured. It also gave me a new found respect for the woman who had to go through so much torture and survived at all costs.

I abosolutly love this book. It made me cry, a 6th grader. I chose this book for a book report and i got an A+ on it! I was very happy she is my hero, sad how her mother is not really her mother.
