The Boy in the Striped Pyjamas by John Boyne

This was a very quick read.  It is the story of a nine year old boy named Bruno who moves with his family from their home in Berlin to a new home that faces a fence.  All of the people behind the fence wear striped pyjamas, and Bruno doesn't understand why.  the family has moved here because Bruno's father has received a promotion to Commandant by "The Fury."  It is a chilling story that I highly recommend.  I rate this book 5 out of 5.
