THE BOY AT THE TOP OF THE MOUNTAIN, by John Boyle

Boy

The story: Orphaned French boy Pierrot is sent to live with his aunt, who just happens to be the housekeeper at the Berghof, Adolf Hitler’s country home. As he comes into repeated contact with Der Fuhrer, “Pieter” gradually loses his innocence and become a mini Hitler himself. What will it take for him to regain his humanity?

Mrs. Friend’s opinion:  This is a story that will make you think, but don’t expect a happy ending.  Cuz Nazis.
