The book I am currently reading is The Boy in the Striped Pajamas by John Boyne. From what I have read I understand that the main character Bruno and his family have to move out of Berlin. The reason being his family has to be moving because of his father’s job. Bruno never understood the whole reason why they moved around or where his dad works. His older sister Gretel and him start discussing how they are missing their friends from Berlin. In their new neighborhood, there is no children or other families to play with. Bruno decides to tell Gretel about what he is able to see from his room. Once Gretel looks through the window she notices what Bruno was saying about their being kids there. What they don’t understand is that they are concentration camps for the Jews. What they think is in back of their home is people who aren’t in good living conditions. Bruno and his father start having a conversation about the people he sees from his bedroom window, but his father just says that those people aren’t people at all. I am still currently reading the book. I look forward to seeing what happens if Bruno will find out the reality of who those people are.
