A Candle in the Dark

Review by raph0

I loved this book. It made me think that I went back in time. This book is for all ages. I loved the story of Clara. Maxie is my favourite character. I recommend this book for everyone. It is an amazing book to read.

A Candle in the Dark

Review by ElianaGav

I think it is a great book. It is basically going back and time and describing how us jews might have felt.
