Review: The Devil's Arithmetic

User Review  - Jeff - Goodreads

I read with this with my ten year old daughter. It starts a bit slowly and the story didn't draw her in immediately, but I'm glad we didn't give up on it. A tearjerker of an ending put an exclamation point on the horrors of the holocaust that Yolen so effectively brings to life. Read full review
