Briar Rose (YA) (4.5/5)


Briar Rose (YA) (4.5/5)

This is a good holocaust book--set in Poland. A grandmother tells her granddaughters the story of Sleeping Beauty, though it's different than the traditional version. After her death, the family realizes they didn't know much about the grandmother at all. The youngest granddaughter, Becca, goes to Poland to try to figure out the true story of her grandmother's youth. This book could work for HS students and adults.
