The twists keep readers guessing...Judge, 22nd Annual Writer's Digest Self-Published Book Awards

Students study the Holocaust, but only in fiction like Guardian Angel can they realize its impact. It centers on a class project on the Holocaust and one student whose grandmother (Oma) lived through it. The twists keep readers guessing while showing the struggles teens face balancing family and friends. The author brings Markus's relationships alive, making readers care about everyone in the story. The ending wasn't predictable but was heartwarming. The author handled it with great diplomacy, presenting all sides of the issue while preserving history for the many who suffered.

Firstly, the cover grabbed me, with that green eye staring through bars, and the authors summary lured me in. As I began reading this teen novel, it slowly dawned on me that this was not going to be a simple story of a troubled boy dealing with the trials of everyday life and growing up. The twist in the tale was a real reward for reading into the early hours of the morning as I could not put this down! The authors style moves the plot forward and the characters, adults included, seemed true to life. This one had me thinking about it for days and weeks afterwards, as it shows that not everything is always as straightforward as it seems. Highly recommended.

Wonderful novel. My daughter recommended that I read this book on our beach weekend when I had left my own book at home. She said I would love it. She was right! The characters were colorful and real to me. The author shows a remarkable understanding of the complexities of middle school students' relationships. I enjoyed the wonderful twists in the story line. I look forward to reading
more of his books!

An entertaining book about the holocaust. It keeps the reader engaged way more than a text book and offers as much accurate information. Definitely a good read for anybody wanting to learn about the holocaust as well as read about the very human side of the experience.

I thought this was a wonderful story of how a teenager found the truths of the holocaust and how its reality might again
hurt Oma (grandmother). The scene in the nursing home had a lot of impact on me as she spoke with survivor 21705.

Terrific story!

A Social Studies project becomes much more than finding information in the library. Markus tries to become friends with the popular crowd by asking his grandma about her experiences in the concentration camp during the Holocaust. She refuses, not wanting to relive the horrors of the past.
Through many emotional journeys with his friends, family and his grandma (Oma), you will learn so much about the power of friendship, family and who you really are.

This book should be required reading for middle school. It is a first person account of some of the horrors of the concentration camps, yet seen through the eyes of a contemporary eighth grader.
As we get farther away from the horror of Nazi Germany, it is overlaid in the minds of succeeding generations with the current horrors in the world. Much in this book is applicable to today's happenings, and could go a long way toward helping future generations to prevent history from repeating itself.

I've read MANY books regarding the Holocaust and appreciated Guardian Angel for its realism along with the twists that kept me engaged to find out how it all turns out. The book is geared towards the young adult reader but I think anyone with an interest in the Holocaust and its relevance to today's youth will find it worthwhile.

Although written for young teens, my husband and I found it interesting from cover to cover. The message of the novel is one which should
never be forgotten. We recall the aftermath of the Holocaust and the unimaginable suffering of an entire people brought about by monsters.
This story needs to be retold to every generation, and the book should be required reading in all middle schools.
