Read full description of the books:
World War II is over and Freddie, a young ex-soldier, is trying to make his living as a ventriloquist. The only problem is that he isn't that good at throwing his voice without moving his lips. This situation is quickly solved when he suddenly finds himself possessed by a Dybbuk, a young jewish ghost named Avrom Amos who was killed by an SS officer during the war. Avrom wants revenge on those who killed him. He also wants people to remember the terrible fate that came to the millions of jewish children just like him. And who better to use than a man who stands up on stage in front of crowd with a dummy to speak for him?
At first, I wasn't too sure of this book mainly because the book cover threw me off a little. It looked a little too young and with only 180 pages, I wasn't too sure if the story could be told that would give this topic justice. However, I was completely wrong. This book does a very good job of keeping your interest into seeing how Avrom will get his revenge while at the same time giving accurate and chilling facts about the crimes committed. The author's note at the end just helps clarify a few facts and is a great touch to the story. There wasn't a lot of drag and it was a quick read. I still wouldn't say this was my favorite world war II novel but I am sure that students who are looking for a very good historical fiction novel will love this book.
(on a side note, at my school, the holocaust is presented in 8th grade and I always have several students asking for these types of books to read. This books fits wonderfully into the curriculum and must be added to our collection.)
