During the days of World War 2, there were the Allied powers: Great Britain, USA, and then later on, Russia; and the Axis Powers: Germany, Italy and Japan. But Germany had its own plans, and that didn't involve its fellow Axis powers; it's main goal was to take the world for its own. This book is about a young teenager, barely 14, who is plucked from his home in Venice, Italy, believing that he was a fellow Facist, raised in a family of Facists to go to a work camp and treated like a prisoner. This book tells of his strives, stories of death and mourning and survival. This is very extraordinary; just think throughout the book that he is just 13 years old, yet you'd be surprised if you find yourself thinking him 16 or 17!
