by Elie Wiesel

Night coverFollow Eliezer as he takes you on his frighteningly vivid journey as a victim of the Holocaust, through the thick and thin of one of the most notorious concentration camps, Auschwitz.

As it documents Elie's story (though some parts are inaccurate to his personal experience for several reasons), Night is obviously a sad book with a bittersweet ending. However, the story itself was portrayed so vividly and wonderfully that I can't help but give it full marks.

Anyone who has a taste for history and doesn't mind a sorrowful book will enjoy this, though high schoolers will get the most out of this text. Be warned that some of the horrible things that happened during the Holocaust will be described to a degree.
