Parts of this novel moved me to tears, but other parts didn’t feel quite right. I can’t put my finger on why, but all I can say is that they were like really well-done veneer. Nevertheless, this book stands out from other ones set during the Holocaust. It’s about four thousand forgotten children and France’s culpability in the Jewish round-ups. It’s educating, engaging, and—no real surprise—heartbreaking.
