Book Review: Projekt 1065

Book Title: Project 1065
Author: Alan Gratz
Genre: Historical Fiction, Young Adult

This was a very good read, although not enough to make my favorites list. It was also a very fast read. I did like that it gave importance to the fact that children were a large part of World War II and the way the Nazi’s fought. Even though there were parts at the end that seemed unbelievable (it is historical fiction so why not go with it?), I was given a slightly better understanding of the brainwashing that was used during this time. I also liked being able to hear Michael’s thoughts throughout this period of time and how he was able to stick firmly to what he believed despite being right in the midst of everything, something I’m sure that was difficult to do given his age and the people around him. Michael was very brave in what he did, and when it came to Simon, important lessons had to be learned about sacrifice. Another part of this book that I liked. It stressed making sacrifices but the greater good no matter how hard or how wrong what a person has to do is in order for the greater good to win. I gave this 3/5 stars.
