Number the Stars By Lois Lowry is about two best friends in Nazi-occupied Copenhagen. One of the girls is Jewish so you can imagine what her life becomes. The other learns quickly about sacrifice and courage. Well-written and presented, with some interesting bits of Danish history. And an easy, quick read, perfect for the Read-a-thon!
