This fictional account of life in a concentration camp is quite realistic. It's good , but is pretty heavy reading.

I loved the historical fiction aspect paired with the reality of the
research. I found it to be incredibly moving given the ending--which I do not
want to divulge. I will be teaching this book. Great characterization.
