Number the Stars by Lois Lowry Bryan Yao Definitely a touching and thrilling novel. Lois Lowry's "Number the Stars" describes the story and life of the ten-year-old Annemarie who risked her life to save her Danish Jew friend, Ellen, from the hands of the Nazis. Lowry's novel speaks on how to go against the flow of antisemitism and other forms of racism, making us think about how we can end racism--in words and in deeds. https://images-na.ssl-images-amazon.com/images/I/5196ZMP0QRL._SX321_BO1,204,203,200_.jpg https://www.amazon.com/gp/reader/0440403278#reader-link
