LoveReading4Kids Says

One of Our Books of the Year 2017 |   Lili Petalo is a trapeze artist in her family’s circus, growing up part of a warm, loving family, proud of her heritage and the Romani customs that inform all they do. Max is fascinated by Lili from their first meeting and gradually a friendship develops that turns to love. But this is 1942, and love between a Romani girl and a German boy is forbidden. The fate of the hundreds of thousands of Romani people who lost their lives in the Nazi death camps has been described as ‘the forgotten Holocaust’; Sarah Matthias paints a vivid portrait of the people and the culture Hitler attempted to destroy and succeeds too in making her young heroes Lili and Max living, breathing characters.  An enthralling story of love and loss that deserves to be widely read.    The Earth is Singing by Vanessa Curtis is another deeply affecting story of the Holocaust, inspired by real life people and events.
