Great story...

First of all, thank you for the comments about my summer camp:-) It was so much fun and we have many special memories from those days. I'm off to Las Vegas for a few days but before I go, I have to tell you about a book I just read.

You may have heard of the movie that is at Blockbuster...The Boy in the Striped Pajamas. It is never available so I bought the book and my girls and I read it. OH MY GOSH...what a great little book. Here is a little about the story...

"Set during World War II, a story seen through the innocent eyes of Bruno, the eight-year-old son of the commandant at a concentration camp, whose forbidden friendship with a Jewish boy on the other side of the camp fence has startling and unexpected consequences."

This is a part of history we can never forget and this is one special little book. Read it, watch the movie...or both. You won't be sorry you did:-)

  3. Oh my gosh...I have had this movie on my wait list at the library for months but had no idea it was an adapted screenplay. I'm totally going to have to read the book first. Thanks Suzanne and have a great trip to Vegas!
