Reader reviewed by Jake

When Roberto goes to a matinee with his friends, German soldiers invade the theater and force him and scores of other Italian teen boys to board trains bound for German Territories. Despite the fact that Italy and Germany were allies in the war, the Germans use the boys as slaves. They are given little to eat, no warm clothing, and must perform hard manual labor. With only his Jewish friend Samuele alongside him, Roberto strives to survive and keep Samueles true identity concealed from the soldiers.
