I just finished reading this book. I don't want to say too much in case someone wants to read it but it is about a boy in Nazi Germany (his father is a Commandant in the Nazi movement) and he is forced to leave his home in Berlin to go to another house in the middle of nowhere. While he is exploring the surroundings he comes to a fence and there is a little boy his age (9) on the other side of the fence in "striped pajamas".
If you have any interest in WWII / Holocaust types of stories, you will enjoy this. It is a short read but very moving. I cried / bawled reading this book which doesn't happen very often. So in short read this book if you need a good cry and a few laughs.
