List - Teen Novels in Verse
AL_CATHERINE Mar 02, 2017

I love World War II novels. Based on a true story, this novel of the Holocaust is a heart-wrenching and beautiful look at the power of friendship and hope in the worst conditions.

Zlatka went against the rules during the Nazi occupation--she gathered art materials to create a heart card for her friend, as the two struggled to survive in Auschwitz, the Nazi concentration camp.

World War II Holocaust fiction - I loved this beautifully written novel in verse about friendship and hope in the worst possible circumstances.

This novel in verse is based on actual events. It captures the terror and privations of life at Auschwitz. Historical information at the end includes pictures of the origami heart at the center of the story. It survives in a Holocaust museum to this day.
