The Boy in the Striped Pajamas - John Boyne

Received a note last week from my son's reading teacher regarding this book.  I had to sign to either grant or deny him permission to read it, along with an offer from the teacher to send home another copy for parents to read along.  He should be bringing my copy home today, but I think he kept it in his desk on purpose so that he could be ahead of me in reading it.  =)
