“The Boy at the Top of the Mountain” by John Boyne

John Boyne The Boy at the Top of the MountainFrom the writer of The Boy in the Striped Pajamas, John Boyne, comes an equally moving tale of a boy with a very different story to tell. In the midst of tragedy young Pierrot is sent to live with his aunt in Austria. Little does he know that he will be quickly swept up into the allure of the Nazi regime. Told through the eyes of Pierrot, the injustices of the second world war are shown in a very unconventional light and eventually he will be forced to decide between his birthplace and his new found home. Beautifully crafted and thought out, The Boy at the Top of the Mountain offers an unprejudiced view into the life of a boy torn between two worlds.
