Rated 5 out of 5 by from Hard to read, even harder to put down The story is a unique look at how one young girl learns about the holocaust and the importance of remembering our past. As difficult as it can be to read the stories of holocaust survivors, this book is even harder to put down.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love it I've been literally attached to this book ever since my 5th grade class read it as a class novel. It's been 3 years and every time I have a list of books to read on my Kobo, this is ALWAYS on that list (I'm not kidding), its a great read and I would recommend it to everyone with small kids, kids in general, or those looking for a quick, yet gripping read.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from I have a new found respect for Denmark and its courageous and patriotic people Number The Stars is a heartening tale of the solidarity and love shared by a country and her countrymen, even whereby divergent religions could cause no fault. It is a tale woven with endearing and inspiring characters, written in a simple yet poignant manner, by one of the most affecting Young-Adult Fiction writers of our time. Lowry is a master in the art of the subtle details that invoke elaborate and griping visualizations. The prose is ever engaging as the depictions of beautiful scenery are juxtaposed by brutal content, as is unconditional love of man by another’s opportunistic hatred, and innate kindness by enforced cruelty. Through our protagonist, Annemarie, we are met with candid innocence, as with her admiration of Sweden among other things, she is always hopeful and virtuously in search of freedom. In a child who is courageous enough to admit and face her fears, we learn the true meaning of bravery and what it means personally and as a whole. This moving piece of fiction is one part, history lesson, and two parts, a lesson in humanity, and I encourage all tweens, teens and adults that haven’t had the opportunity to read it to lend themselves to its splendor. www.booksnakereviews.blogspot.com
