by Anthony Doerr
This book is an incredible story that follows the lives of a teen age girl and boy during WWII. All they have in common is the war, until their paths cross one day. The boy who is an orphaned is convinced to join the Nazi Party, but feels like he is not doing what's right. The girl who is blind, struggles as she is forced to leave her home in Paris, and live with her Great-Uncle.
All the Light We Cannot See is an amazing book because it shows an angle of the Holocaust not normally covered: the German's side. The characters are well developed, leaving you hopeful they'll do the right things.
If you love historical fiction, and a challenging read with incredible language, you'll love All the Light We Cannot See by Anthony Doerr.
