Once was about a Jewish boy named Felix. Once takes place during the 1940′s, when Hitler and the Nazi’s are in power. Felix’s parents, before the war started, put Felix in an orphanage. Knowing his parents are alive, Felix leaves the orphanage and “runs away” to home. But why are the Nazi’s burning books? Why do they hate him? Why did they force him into a work camp?
I liked the beginning of this book. It was filled with action. However, I didn’t like the way it ended. It just suddenly ended, and it didn’t tell you what happened to him.
