The book The Boy in the Striped Pajamas by John Boyne is about a little boy named Bruno who lives in Berlin. He has a very happy life with his mother, father, sister, grandmother, and grandfather. But then his perfect life turned upside down. His father is a very important person in World World II, so he and his family had to move to a new place which was right next to a Concentration Camp. Bruno meets a little boy who is on the other side of the fence and Bruno is very confused why he is there.
Something that I loved about this book is the random illustrations of the camp and Bruno doing things in his new house. My favorite thing to read about is World War II. I did have a problem with the book though. I don’t like the ending because it’s a cliff-hanger, and they didn’t make another book to explain the ending.
