characters Í Milkweed Û PDF, DOC, TXT or eBook All to be nobodyNewbery Medalist Jerry Spinelli takes us to one of the most devastating settings imaginable Nazi occupied Warsaw of World War II and tells a tale of heartbreak hope and survival through the bright eyes of a young orphan From the Hardcover edition. I would venture that this is a read alike for The Boy in the Striped Pajamas Set in Poland during World War II Milkweed is told through the uniue perspective of one of those lost through the cracks kids Our MC Misha for all intents and purposes is a thief a runner an orphan a gypsy with no memory of his life before the story begins He steals food to survive and has zero awareness of what is going on in his little world outside of the speeding images that he runs past daily Misha stumbles upon a group of boys thieves like himself and learns a bit about what is happening and what it means The imagery is startling in it s youthful metaphors and innocence Spinelli uses Misha s voice to show us what the world looked like and what it truly means to be invisible This is one of those books that reminds me I m a monster or that I have broken eyes or some such thing I bet this book makes loads of people cry but not me my eyes were bone dry

I love both Maniac Magee and Stargirl but this book left me cold I found it unbelievable I didn t really care about the characters Spinelli is usually good to pull me into the story but this story just made me feel yucky I didn t get the whole Candy man in the Ghetto Where did he come from In every story I ve ever read about the Holocaust the children and adults are always afraid of the soldiers I found the idea of the Misha and Janina taunting the Mint man annoying It wouldn t have happened that way I found the story annoying and trite I expect better from SpinelliEdited to AddI think I figured out why this story bothers me so much Spinelli tells of a boy who is fast smart and lucky enough to escape the Nazis This story feeds into the fact that victims need to be better stronger faster clever etc and if they are they can outsmart their abusers I feel that stories like this perpetuate the myth that the victim is responsible for their own escape from abuse This story is why so many who have not been abused or in horrible situations say things like Well why didn t they just walk away Why didn t they tell someone Torture and abuse go so far beyond what normal people realize that normal reactions don t happen when a person is in the thick of horror This story asks the uestions Misha was able to walk away from the Ghetto why didn t all those other Jews just walk away from the Ghetto It isn t realistic I feel this story downplays the suffering of those who lived through the death camps and all of those who didn t Why didn t all those other Jews steal food so they didn t starve to death They should have been as smart as Misha who is fictional Now that I ve identified why I don t like this book I feel better not about the book
