Book Reviews [New!]

'Sarah's Key' by Tatiana DE Rosnay

Recently Ive been studying hard core for finals, and now that all that suffering is over I dont have to feel bad about finishing up this fantastic book! I first learned about it when I saw the movie preview on IMDB! 

It looks really amazing, but when I heard it was based off an international selling book I couldn’t stop myself from reading it! Im one of those people who HAVE to read  the book if possible before seeing the movie. It really is a curse… but if It wasn’t a huge pet peeve of mine I wouldn’t have started to enjoy this astounding novel!





Here is a short summary from the book: (Found at 

Paris, July 1942: Sarah, a ten-year-old girl, is taken with her parents by the French police as they go door to door arresting Jewish families in the middle of the night. Desperate to protect her younger brother, Sarah locks him in a bedroom cupboard—their secret hiding place—and promises to come back for him as soon as they are released.

Sixty Years Later: Sarah’s story intertwines with that of Julia Jarmond, an American journalist investigating the roundup. In her research, Julia stumbles onto a trail of secrets that link her to Sarah, and to questions about her own future.

In Sarah’s Key, Tatiana de Rosnay offers up a mesmerizing story in which a tragic past unfolds, the present is torn apart, and the future is irrevocably altered.

And here a short description of the movie: (found at        

                An American journalist (Scott Thomas) discovers a mysterious family story related to the FrenchVel‘d’Hiv Roundup in 1942. Sixty years later, the truth remains unknown.

They both seem somewhat historically accurate when it comes to the actual facts  of the Vel’d’Hiv Roundup! It really is an amazing story and I look forward to telling you about the movie soon!
