  Prisoner B-3087 by Alan Gratz

Review by: Alex L.
New York, Grade 7

This book is written after a brother and a sister during the Holocaust. Sadly, only the brother survived.

This book tells you about how a Jewish boy survives the Holocaust. How he traveled from one concentration camp to another. The friends he makes and loses really pull at your emotions. At the beginning, he has a whole family. Mother, Father, Siblings, and a Grandfather. Over the course of the book he loses each family member one by one. Soon he is the only one left. The anger, sadness, depression, desperation, and determination of this boy will remind you that your life isn't all that bad. Still hungry? You had literally nothing to eat all day. If you were caught sneaking food, you would be killed. he has to travel hundreds of miles in a cramped train car where everybody barely has room to breathe. My rating is a 10 out of 10 for this book.
