This is not a light and airy book -- it brings to mind "Night" by Eli Weisel although this particular work is historical fiction. Jane Yolen does a remarkable job of sharing the minds of twins Chaim and Gittel. Chaim is economical with the spoken word, but spins evocative poems out of the words he hears around him. My favorite portions of the book were Chaim's poems. Gittel's contributions are more analytical and she is given the honor of summing up the story for us. We see the true suffering of the children in three parts: the ghetto, the forest and the camp. Highly recommended!
