"White Bird" by R. J. Palacio (a graphic children's novel)

White Bird by R. J. Palacio is a story about a young Jewish girl named Sara.  Her childhood is a good one until world War II starts and Hitler and his army start to take over Sara's homeland.  This is a graphic novel so it goes really fast!  The story line is a good one and it kept me engaged throughout.  The pictures were very nice and middle-school readers will enjoy this and also learn some valuable life lessons from factual history.  I think adults would enjoy this too, like I did.
(Gerard's review, 4 stars)

Teaser from page 7:  "...Those were dark times, yes...but what has stayed with me the most is not the darkness......but the light.  That is what I have held on to all these years......and that is the story I want to share with you now."
