1. Sarah’s Key- Tatiana de Rosnay
Sarah’s Key is a story set in Paris in 1942. It’s a super emotional read. The narrative jumps around in time, but it’s fantastic and so gripping.
2. The Boy In The Striped Pyjamas- John Boyne
Another emotional, heart-wrenching read, this one set in Berlin in 1942. I’m pretty sure most of you know of this book!
3. The Wrong Boy- Suzy Zail
This is a story about a Jewish girl who is sent to Auschwitz and falls in love with a German boy.
4. Prisoner of Night and Fog- Anne Blankman
A great story about ‘Uncle’ Dolf. This is a duology and the follow up is just as good!
5. Code Name Verity- Elizabeth Wein
A powerful, emotional read.
