I really enjoyed this book! It was both enjoyable and inspiring! The story made me stop and think about how blessed we are to live in the United States as compared to living in a communist country. We too often take for granted some of life’s simple pleasures!

No brainier, good read! I thought it was strange that this is a teen book, due to the details in this story. I never knew about the Berlin Wall, and now I want to know the history about it. I found it sad that few people know the history of the wall.
