Adore this story with all my heart!
The movie was one of my favorite of all times for the last decade and a half and I JUST now realized it originated with a book. I bought the book used and read it in a single day, enjoying it all over again.
While not for the young reader, the sadness doesn't detract from the power of the beautiful relationship between Alan and Naomi. The story has influenced much of my own published fiction. Would recommend it for sure!

This is a very moving story. My son had to read it for school and he was not sure that he would like it. I read it first, 46 yo Mom, and he saw me crying in the first chapter, so he was even more skeptical. But after he read it we talked about the decisions and the changes in the main character. It is a good read for anyone (need to be over 10/12 depending on maturity).

It was just okay. I had to read it for my Narrating Childhood class. It was short and easy to read.

Stories should change a person. At a minimum, they should make the reader feel something. Otherwise, both the author and the reader have wasted their time. This little book will definitely leave a mark.

I'm not sure about the word count, but it's close to the threshold of novel and novelette. Either way, it's about mixed neighborhoods and PTSD, masculinity, friendship, tenderness, adolescence, and the long, ugly fingers of war. Most remarkable is Levoy's portrayal of conflicted emotions, and how we don't show what we feel or act in ways that make sense. Alan's youthful insecurity is palpable and immediately identifiable, an experience shared across generations.

Others have recommended hiding this from younger readers, as the subject matter is emotionally intense and difficult to handle. Discretion is always encouraged, but I respectfully propose that twelve, the age of the protagonist, is an appropriate age for most.
I think Alan and Naomi by M. Levoy is one of the best books written for young adults I've ever read. It deals with such difficult themes as war and anti-Semitism but it's very easy to read.

Naomi Kirshenbaum escapes from the Nazis in Poland but she is rather dead than alive.

Her father made maps of the Paris sewers and helped the Resistance soldiers. When the Nazis found it out and came for him, he asked Naomi to tear up the maps. And she was tearing and tearing the maps until her nails were broken and her hands were covered with blood. But it didn't help. Her father saved her life by pushing her under the bed. He was beaten to death on the floor while she was watching....And now Naomi doesn't speak, doesn't smile and is afraid of the slightest sound. She spends all her time tearing pieces of paper.

Alan Silverman is asked by his father to help Naomi. At first he is ashamed and afraid to be seen with her. But later....

If you want to know whether Alan can help Naomi and if the book has a happy end you should definitely read it yourself.

I was really surprised how realistic the events are described. The thoughts and actions of Alan are so natural that you believe immediately this story is true. I like this book very much not only because it's a heart-warming and touching story but also because this book makes you think. It makes you think about the Holocaust and World War II, about real friendship and anti-Semitism. You will not just read this book, you will live it.
