Who knows?

Maybe you'll form your own unlikely friendship in the process. Why Should I Care? Be honest: Have you ever taken no for an answer?

We'll admit that we have. And we're not just talking about when we'd ask our moms for more ice cream as kids—we've accepted nos and never minds and don't worry about its in response to more important queries before, too.

Sometimes we've felt fine about this afterward—it's important to pick your battles, after all—but others, we haven't felt so good about. Sometimes you just have to keep pushing for an answer in order to fight the good fight.

And this is a lesson that The Boy in the Striped Pajamas teaches in spades. No one wants to tell Bruno, the main character, anything—and as the child of a Nazi commandant, who lives literally right next door to Auschwitz, he sees plenty of things that leave him curious about what's really going on.

But whenever he asks, he's always brushed aside or told not to concern himself with such matters. Without giving away the ending, let's just say his unwillingness to insist on more information comes to cost him dearly.

While we hope you never encounter anything even remotely like the Holocaust, we're certain that you will encounter more moments in which you're given the choice to push for knowledge or turn away.

Whenever he put it down, I picked it up because Buno is the perfect narrator to pull any reader right in. Boyne tried his hand at this, and succeeded in a small way, in that the reader understood more of what the Jews were going through than Bruno did, but too much was avoided in the guise of protecting the reader, and overall, it failed. Bruno misses his friends, his grandparents, and the city itself. Which do you find more moving?
