Sarah's Key by Tatiana de Rosnay

Despite the grim time in French history that this book was depicting, I thought it was well-written and hard to put down.  It was written in two voices- that of Sarah and that of Julia.  I did think that part of the plot was pretty predictable in how the author intertwined Sarah and Julia's lives, but it is still worth reading.  I had no idea to what extent the French were involved in the war and the Holocaust.  Yes, this book is fiction, but it was a lesson in history for me as well.

I would recommend this book to others and I look forward to seeing the movie even though I'm usually disappointed when I compare book to movie.
