Lauren Yonofsky Hates the Holocaust
Baker & Taylor
Lauren, a Jewish teen, struggles when some friends play Nazi war games, her best friend likes the same boy she does, and her family pushes her to embrace her heritage.

Orca Book Publishers
Lauren Yanofsky doesn't want to be Jewish anymore. Her father, a noted Holocaust historian, keeps giving her Holocaust memoirs to read, and her mother doesn't understand why Lauren hates the idea of Jewish youth camps and family vacations to Holocaust memorials. But when Lauren sees some of her friends—including Jesse, a cute boy she likes—playing Nazi war games, she is faced with a terrible choice: betray her friends or betray her heritage.
Told with engaging humor, LYHH isn't simply about making tough moral choices. It's about a smart, funny, passionate girl caught up in the turmoil of bad-hair days, family friction, changing friendships, love—and, yes, the Holocaust.

Lauren, a Jewish teen, is sick of hearing about the Holocaust but must make a tough choice when some friends play Nazi war games.

This was an ok book. I found it kind of average. I like the background of the story , but I felt like the ending was like a cliffhanger. It wasn't anything big, and it didn't have any meaning. Three Stars .
