He’s a boy called Jew Gypsy Stopthief Runt Happy Fast Filthy son of Abraham He’s a boy who lives in the streets of Warsaw He’s a boy who steals food for himself and the other orphans He’s a boy who believes in bread and mothers and angels He’s a boy wh I hope that nobody will look at me funny when I say that I love reading WWIIHolocaust stories I do I m drawn to the stories of the people I want to know what it is in us that makes us so cruel to others I m fascinated by people s stories real or fiction I don t think that they should be ignored or forgotten and acknowledging them makes me thankful for the good things that I have in my life Milkweed is a story of an orphan in 1930s Poland who knows nothing but survival Not who he is who other people are nothing of the world around him He knows only that he is small and fast and able to snatch food right from under the noses of the people it belongs to He is eventually taken in by a gang of orphan kids and becomes the special ward of one in particular Uri I really loved Uri s character He s generous kind wise beyond his years in tune with the world around him and street smart He teaches or tries to teach our main character orphan who he later names Misha about life and how to keep it His character is almost that of a mentor or older brother to clean slate Misha and I loved that he was stern with Misha when Misha obliviously ran dangerous risks that would endanger both Uri s and Misha s lives He makes sure that when they have a surplus of food that other orphans receive it When Misha ends up branded as a Jew and living in a ghetto in Warsaw the tables turn a bit and he begins to act the older brother role for a young girl named Janina Janina s family was once wealthy and well to do and living in the ghetto is a hard adjustment for her Her father Tobiasz takes in Misha as one of the family and Misha smuggles food in from outside the ghetto to help feed the family and a house of orphans in the care of another man Janina takes to following Misha on these trips which is frustrating to me as a reader because she s the epitome of a spoiled brat She refuses to do what she s told or to stay inconspicuous She willfully causes a scene to get her way and refuses to accept that her situation has changed I could not understand why Misha stuck by her I understand that he now considered her and Tobiasz as his family but I d have probably beat her to a pulp in that situation Her father is a kind man and next to Uri the only character that I cared for He tries to make sure that his daughter is safely away from the ghetto when he finds out that they are being resettled elsewhere a concentration camp but she stubbornly and selfishly refuses I couldn t stand the little bratIt s hard for me to enjoy a story where so much focus is put on stupid or annoying characters that I cannot relate to Every decision that Misha or Janina made was contrary to the one that I d have made in their place Janina ended up right where I thought she would in the end but until then every time that she wasn t caught by the patrols it was unrealistic and aggravating because she was essentially doing everything she could to be caught and just got insanely lucky time after time On top of that I felt like the writing was just off I don t know how to describe it but it felt simplistic to me even for a YA book But at the same time it felt like it was supposed to be imparting some great truths and while there were a few good uotes I didn t think that there was anything especially profound here So this was OK Not anywhere close to the best book I ve read on this subject but not terrible I just expected a bit I think Zelenbabini darovi of Abraham He’s a boy who lives in the streets Ruthless of
