Member Book Review: The Boy in the Striped Pajamas

by John Boyne   

review by Corinne  

If someone said “best friend” to you, would someone immediately come to mind?  This book tells the story of two boys with different lives-one a son of a highly decorated Nazi commander and the other a Jewish prisoner in a concentration camp.  Set in 1940’s Germany, this is a heartfelt story of friendship, courage, discrimination and sadness.  This is a story that shows even the most different of people can be the best of friends.  Read the adventures of Bruno and Shmuel, and you won’t regret it.  That is why I would recommend The Boy in the Striped Pajamas by John Boyne.
