I was a serious person and she could barely see him. even if he comes home he rushes back in a hurry because of the patrols in each street corner.

That night Peter told about the current situation in Denmark with a big issue which was they were just coming into houses and seizing Jews. Now the Johansen's had to save the rosens from the Nazi's. They had to hide the Rosen's. Read the story to see what is going to happen these two families.

What do I think about this book?

I think Number the Stars earned a five-star rating because it is a nice and suspenseful story for kids about my age from 9 years - 18 years. The reason why I chose this book is because this story provides information about a life of and Jewish Family in Denmark and how they struggled like rations and splitting from their children. I have read this story at least two times and I still want to read it.

One of the reasons I did not like this book is because of the ending because it does not talk about what happens to the two characters or what did they do.

One reason that I liked the book is because of it's suspenseful parts like when a Nazi soldiers call them.
