When trapped or frightened, Esther sees windows -- and flying out of them -- as her only salvation. In 2004, this book was published by Kids Can Press Ltd. in Canada and in the United States. Although the plot was confusing, the characters were developed, and the writing style was unique. In this book, a large group of Jews are hiding in a barn trying to find a way to France to get away from the angry Nazi’s.

When trapped or frightened, Esther sees windows -- and flying out of them -- as her only salvation. Young, Jewish and on the run from the Nazis, Esther is one of a group of children who manage to flee Germany for Belgium and then France at the beginning of World War II. Despite her perilous situation, she frets over her frumpy looks, is ridiculed by the popular girls and loves a boy who -- at the best of times -- treats her like a sister. As the war rages on and Esther bears witness to its horrors, her pain and isolation grow -- until only the highest windows bring the promise of release.

The Thought of High Windows is not a typical Holocaust book. Told from the point of view of 16 year old Esther, this is the story of the teen leaving her family behind to try to find safety in France. It is a Holocaust story, but it is also a coming of age story; Esther feels fat and ugly, is mistreated by the other girls who are staying at the home, and is rejected by the boy of her dreams who only sees her as a little sister. At times Esther can be annoying in her self-pity, but that also makes the story believable. Esther must come to an understanding of her place in the world and what she has to offer. The backdrop of the Holocaust makes the story more poignant as Esther realizes it's all up to her. This is a good story and is recommended for its human elements.

I just finished reading this novel and I loved it. I have read many Holocaust novels, and so many of them sound the same. Lynne Kositsky has been able to take the genre one step beyond. Her characters are real and complex, and the story is one that hasn't been told before. I like how she shows the bad in good people, and the good in the bad.
I have read many of Kositsky's novels, but this one is her best.
Bravo!
