Once is about a boy who lives in an orphanage. He thinks that he is the only one at the orphanage who has parents alive. He wonders why his parents hasn't come so he escapes to go look for his parents. He gets help from some friends who escape with him to look for his parents. He conquers many obstacles on his adventure and may not survive.
Why someone should read it
I think people should read it if they like things about the past and World War II. Its a good book for people who like adventures in the book. Also it has some emotional scenes in this book so it would be a good book for people who like drama books.
