BOYNE, John. (2006) The Boy in the Striped Pyjamas. David Ficklin Books
José Ferrer Laforteza, 2º Bachillerato EFL

Bruno’s family moved house from Berlin to Auschwitz because of his father’s job. Near their new house, Bruno found a fence and he decided to know what it was, so he started walking at its side. On the other side of the fence, there was a boy. They became friends and Bruno went over there every afternoon. One day, Bruno crossed the fence and some soldiers called them and took them to a room with more people and he was never back.
I would recommend that book to people  maybe over 10, because the story is arguably acceptable for all audiences, but the ending is not: it is very tough for young kids.
