During WWII 8-year-old Bruno and his family had to move to a new house, and his father had to relocate for work. Bruno was bored with the new house and he missed his friends. Bruno noticed a “farm” as he called it, while looking out of his window. Bruno was always exploring new things. He was told not to explore in the backyard but he wanted to explore the “farm”. He met a boy named Shmuel. Shmuel is a Jew in a camp but Bruno doesn’t fully understand what that means. The story gets more intense and surprising as you watch. 

My favorite part of this movie was Bruno. Bruno was so young and curious. My least liked part is the devastating ending. I would recommend this book to anyone who likes drama and war. I think war movies and books have always been one of my favorites.
