Summer Reading Assignment

Dear, book Critique

always in the house because he is the lieutenant for Bruno's father. Other characters include Bruno's

family members, Mother, Father, Grandmother, Grandfather. There is a pavel a Jew that works as a

fence in the concentration camp. There are other minor characters in the story but do not have much of

a role.

person or a group of people are taking on society. As in Bruno Vs. his difficulties and his struggles. For
