Number the Stars

Number the Stars - Lois Lowry "Ellen had said that her mother was afraid of the ocean, that it was too cold and too big. The sky was, too, thought Annemarie. The whole world was: too cold, too big. And too cruel. "
— Lois Lowry


I was in the 7th grade when I first read this book. I was to young to understand everything that was going on, but now that I have read it again, I have a different out look. Even when I was little I loved this book, and I still do to this day. It is sad that the quote stated above by Annemarie. It's sad to think, that the world is still like that.

"Mama was crying, and the rain made it seem as if the whole world was crying."

I love this quote, because I think the same way. I think this is a book everyone should reed atless once in their lives. I am glad I got the chance to read this book again.
