Number the Stars

Written by Lois Lowry

This book is about how the Jewish people were caught and treated badly. This book also talks about how a girl named Annemarie saved her best friend Ellen so that she wouldn?t be taken away. Annemarie is very bright,talented,and brave.She would do almost anything to help Ellen from going away.Ellen knows that Annemarie is a true friend.

I recommend this book because it was sad, but terrific. It was an awesome book because it tells about how two friends can help each other.

The moral is about friendship, and being treated equal. Annemarie and Ellen were like Milk and cookies. Although they are completely different, they are good for each other.
