I bought this after seeing the "5-Star" reviews others had posted for it.

All I can say, after spending a whole ten minutes reading the entire "book", is that if something so short and so poorly written were to be handed in as homework to a Year 9 English teacher it would be rejected, not only for it's brevity but also for it's writing style.

Ms Kidwell's "take" on that most heinous of crimes, the Holocaust, is trite, exploitative and skewed in the extreme. Her fundamentalist Christian "beliefs" colour her writing, colour it to such an extent that she cannot pen even the shortest of stories, about a fictional Jewish child's experiences, without bringing her own religious dogma to bear.

This is a short fiction to be avoided, it has no narrative, no character development, to be honest it has no "characters" at all! Ms Kidwell not only plays "fast and loose" with the story of the Holocaust but also disrespects all those who died and suffered at the hands of it's perpetrators.

I have only given it a "Star" because I would not be able to write this without doing so.

Shameful that this is is considered worthy of publication and worse that it costs a penny. Shocking profiteering it would seem

I had just begun to get into this book and then it was done. A true short story if ever there was one. What else can I say!

I feel misled by the star rating this "book" was given and am only writing this to help bring the rating down so that others don't waste their money. I am sure the "author" has a story worth telling but has sadly failed to do so. Children of the Yellow Star reads like a set of disorganised notes. It lacks detail and clarity. It is difficult to be so harsh about someone's story but Amazon really should not be selling this as a book.

Extremely moving, this is not really a book but more of a short report from a survivor, but let's the reader see the horror of war and the atrocities committed.
