I bought this book at Borders on Sunday. I guess, after an adventure book like "Capitan Alatriste" I wanted some deep reading. And did I get that! This is a brilliant, terryfying, infinitely sad little book about a teenager sent to a Nazi concentraion camp. He sees his mother and little sister sent to the gas chambers and sees his father die while screaming his name and he can't go near him because he is afraid of the guards. This book tears you apart.
