Publisher's Summary

When Roberto sneaks off to see a movie in his Italian village, he has no idea that life as he knows it is over. German soldiers raid the theater, round up the boys in the audience, and pack them onto a train. After a terrifying journey, Roberto and his best friend Samuele find themselves in a brutal work camp, where food is scarce and horror is everywhere. The boys vow to stay together no matter what. But Samuele has a dangerous secret, which, if discovered, could get them both killed.

Excellent Read

Napoli gives a revealing depiction of what happened to Italians in WWII.A subject not often written about in popular fiction. Eye opening and informative, she wraps your heart around the characters and their plight.

Excellent story, well read

Simultaneously sad and inspiring. Ended too soon. Intensity and violence might make it difficult for younger or more squeamish readers.
