Only okay. Should not have won such a prestigious award.

After reading "The Giver", also by Lowry, I expected "Number the Stars" to be MUCH better than it was. ("The Giver" is my all-time favorite winner of the Newbery. Highly recommended.) "Number the Stars" is a decent, but unspectacular, book which pales in comparison to "I Am David" by Anne Holm. That story portrays the suffering of the Jews with more depth and feeling than this one. Read that instead.
