John Boyne - The Boy at The Top of The Mountain (2nd Hand Hardback)
When Pierrot becomes an orphan, he must leave his home in Paris for a new life with his Aunt Beatrix, a servant in a wealthy household at the top of the German mountains.
But this is no ordinary time, for it is 1935 and the Second World War is fast approaching; and this is no ordinary house, for this is the Berghof, the home of Adolf Hitler.
Quickly, Pierrot is taken under Hitler's wing, and is thrown into an increasingly dangerous new world: a world of terror, secrets and betrayal, from which he may never be able to escape.

"John Boyne is the master of YA World War II novels. His ability to capture the atrocities of the era, without any of the horrendous detail but retaining the devastating impacts of the time-period, are just masterful." - Goodreads.
"Powerful . . . a fantastic story, and the characters, though not very likeable (this is OK though, given the dark theme of the book), are very detailed and very realistic. Pierrot, the young boy who turns absolutely evil, made me really want to punch Hitler in his big evil face! Ah well. Everybody hates Hitler! A good rush of different emotions were continuously speeding through me the whole way through. I did enjoy the book, a brilliant plot, fab characters, great." - Amazon Review.
