The man in the box
To 13-year-old Niki Lukasser, World War II seems very far away. Then a man appears at the Lukassers' door, a doctor who had saved Niki's life, a Jew--now asking to be hidden. "As in the diary of Anne Frank, the blend of confinement, sexual awakening, and cruelty in this novel makes for a potent and unblinking coming-of-age tale".--"The New Yorker".

Review: The Man in the BoxUser Review - Merideth Lee - Goodreads
This book is more a coming of age story than the story of the "Jew in the box". Moved along quickly and easy to read. Read full review
Review: The Man in the BoxUser Review - Laurie Jameson - Goodreads
This was not the type of story I was expecting. Instead of being about "The Man in the Box", it was more about a teenage boy's coming of age. It was still a good read, just not what I thought it would be. Read full review
