I thought this book was very interesting. This book catches my attention because after every chapter it leaves you hanging. My favorite part of the book was when Annemarie was going to bring a package to her uncle in the boat. Annemarie did not know that there was a secret compartment where the Rosen?s were hiding. This is my favorite part because I think it is very clever and it could save a lot of people?s lives. This is like another book I read called the Underground Railroad. They are alike because they both leave you hanging and they both help a lot of people escape to freedom. Did Annemarie make it in time to give her uncle the package? Did the Rosen?s get to Sweden safely? Read the book to find out.
I recommend this to anyone who likes to read historical fiction. Number the Stars could tell you what happened to the Jews in Denmark during World War II Interested readers would like Number the Stars because the main character Annemarie was brave and risked her life for her friend.
