This book was very suspenseful and interesting. I am very glad that I read this book. My favorite part of the book must have been when the German soldiers went into Annemarie?s house. I liked this part because it is very suspenseful and that is what I like about books. I think what made this book so awesome is Kirsti, Annemarie?s little sister. She made this book awesome because she is hilarious, even though it was because she is a little childish girl who doesn?t know the danger of all this.
There was actually a character that reminded me of myself. That character was Annemarie Johansen. The reason I think she reminds me of myself is because I am very foolish, but when I know I need to be mature, I am. That?s how Annemarie was. Even though I loved this book, it kind of made me nervous because of the war going on with the U.S and Iraq and I don?t want it to get as scary as it was in the book. This book reminds of almost my whole life because I do have an empty-minded sibling, but it?s my brother, not my sister like Annemarie. It also reminds me of my life because like I said before there is a war going on involving us and in the book the whole book is pretty much all about what is happening during the war.
After reading the book, I would definitely recommend it. I would recommend Number the Stars because it is very suspenseful. In fact, it is so suspenseful that it keeps you on the edge of your chair. I would also recommend this book because it is so excellent that you won?t want to close the book. I think kids from the age 10 and up will enjoy this book. I think the author?s writing style might interest readers as well because she does not use hard vocabulary and it isn?t hard to understand. At the same time, it is fabulous.
