Last summer I remember a friend telling me she just finished reading Sarah's Key, and that I have to read it. I have heard one or two other people mention it, but did not pay much attention to it. Then I saw it at our school's book fair . . . and I purchased it.
I didn't have any idea this was a Holocaust novel. Having spent the last two weeks of school with students reading novels on this topic, I wasn't sure I wanted something this dark my first weeks of summer break. Nonetheless, I began Tatiana De Rosnay's book and could not put it down until I was finished. The book contained enough mystery to keep me reading, enough Holocaust detail to keep me engaged, and enough sappy love story for it to be a great summer read.
