The Tattooist of Auschwitz

by Heather Morris

The tattooist of Auschwitz : a novel

This book centered around the life of a Jewish male who had been brought to the concentration camps. After months (or a year) he laid his eyes on what he described as a beautiful woman. Although males weren't allowed to interact with women he didn't let the love he had developed for her go to waste. Eventually they got together and made it out of the camp.

Personally, I fell in love with this book. I could not stop reading it. Morris vividly described everything and made it feel as if I were there. This book brought me to tears and has to go down as one of the most emotional books I've read.

The book is a bit intense, if you're okay with that then it should be perfect. I picked this book up on a whim and it seems to have been one of the best decisions I've made. Although it isn't considered YA I definitely recommend this book.
