Review: THE BOY IN THE STRIPED PAJAMAS by John Boyne

boy-in-striped-pjsAmy from The Sleepy Reader recently posted a review of The Boy in the Striped Pajamas by John Boyne.  Here’s a snippet:

The Boy in the Striped Pajamas is the story of Bruno, a nine-year-old boy, who comes home one day to find that his family is moving due to his father’s job. Bruno is the son of a German officer who will be the Commandant of the Auschwitz concentration camp. From his bedroom window he has seen people in “striped pajamas” behind a fence. Curious about why they are there as well as lonely, Bruno sets out exploring.  He goes to the fence and he happens to meet a boy named Shmuel who is very similar to Bruno in many ways. They even share the same birthday. However, their lives are obviously very different.
