The Boy In the Striped Pajamas, January Discussion Book

Book discussion group to meet on January 23rd to discussion The Boy In the Striped Pajamas

Bruno arrives home from school one day and discovers his belonging are being packed in crates. His father has received a promotion and they must move to a new house far away. There is no one to play with, nothing to do and a tall fence runs as far as he can see.  It cuts him off from the strange people he can see in the distance. Bruno is curious and decides to explore this new place. During one of his explorations he meets another boy whose life and circumstances are very different that his own. Their meeting results in a friendship that has devastating consequences.
