    This is the first Jerry Spinelli book that I have read I bought Stargirl at the same time and after reading Milkweed I am excited to start reading Stargirl Spinelli does well to portray the voice of a young orphan boy in Warsaw There are a lot of reviews about this and the book The Boy in the Striped Pajamas that say that it is unbelievable that there were children that did not know what was going on around them I really disagree with the

I initially read this book to determine whether it was appropriate for my 11 year old daughter to read Although it is considered a YA novel any book fiction or non fiction with a theme centered around the holocaust is a novel I want to preview before allowing my child to absorbI was immediately drawn to the short sentence structure and uick action From the beginning the reader is drawn into an eight year old orphan boy s innocent view of a world where he must steal and become virtually invisible to survive It s a uick read I read it in one day It is the boy s innocent and honest view of the world around him during one of the most horrific times in history that kept me turning the pages The boy s innocence and naivete to the chaos and pure hatred surrounding him is touching and rather humorous at times Although Milkweed is a work of fiction it made me wonder how close it came to the inner workings of a child s mind during this time period While the central theme revolves around the time leading up to the holocaust it only takes the reader through the time when Jews were relocated out of their homes to the ghetto It touches briefly on the time of deportation when those housed in ghettos were put on trains for human shipment to concentration camps However it never visits the horrors of an actual concentration campSome of the prevalent messages that stood out for me in Milkweed were those of hope love and inner happiness at a time when Nazi occupation colored the world gray with irrational hatred and unfair brutality I found myself lingering with thoughts of the book long after I read the final page After reading Milkweed I would allow my daughter to read it I think I would rather read it with her though so if she had any thoughts or uestions we could talk about it along the way
