    I like this book a lot The only thing that bothered me was that I could never figure out if Niki was a boy or a girl It was sort of ambiguous, I though.

    Throughout the book I couldn t help but be amazed how the characters seemed to think the Jew should be grateful, ignoring the fact this man was living in a coffin sized boxed, unable to move about, consisting off of a potato or thin soups each day, unable to bathe, get fresh air, stay warm in winter, cool in summer At least his ending is as happy as a WWII Jewish man s story could be.

    This book is about the Holocaust and a Jewish man the Nazis kept in a box It is a realistic fiction book with some fantastical pieces This would need be read to an upper elementary student because some of the issues aremature However, I do believe it is a good book to read because it deals with history, culture, and how to treat others.

    A work of fiction about a Jewish doctor hidden by an Austrian family The small town of Sankt Vero is the setting for this story told by an adolescent boy, Niki Trying to maintain some kind of normalcy surrounded by extraordinary circumstances and unique characters leads to a very interesting tale.

    I was so excited about this book I set it aside so I would be able to dedicatetime to it s storyline Unfortunately I only set myself up for disappointment The Title storyline was interesting, I can understand the need for an outside storyline because how many interesting pages could be expected from the point of one man trapped in a box for day after day, week after week, year after year However the juxtaposed life of the fellow villagers far to often turned to orgy esque escapades th I was so excited about this book I set it aside so I would be able to dedicatetime to it s storyline Unfortunately I only set myself up for disappointment The Title storyline was interesting, I can understand the need for an outside storyline because how many interesting pages could be expected from the point of one man trapped in a box for day after day, week after week, year after year However the juxtaposed life of the fellow villagers far to often turned to orgy esque escapades that I found not only boring, but increasingly unnecessary to the story Yes this is, in actuality, the story of a pre pubescent boy whose family hides a Jewish man from the Nazi s, I understand he would be dealing with issues of his own sexuality, but so did Anne Frank in that esteemed novel it still managed to further the story rather than hinder it
