Plot and Theme
Lois Lowry wrote this book from Annemaries point of view. Number the Stars is about a 10 year old girl who is called upon for bravery so a group of Jews can be safe in Sweden. Annemarie is stopped by Nazi soldiers multiple times and is forced to lie to them. Number the Stars is a half fiction book and a half non-fiction book. All of the characters are fiction but everything about World War 2 is non-fiction.
My favourite part
My favourite part was when Mrs.Johansen used reverse psychology on the Nazi soldiers so that she would not have to open the casket because I thought it was really smart of her.
