Milkweed, by Jerry Spinelli

Set during WWII in the heart of Poland's war torn Warsaw ghettos, a young boy struggles to survive. He steals to put food in his stomach. He does not even know his own name. He is terribly alone, with no family to watch over him, until someone takes pity on him, and helps him join a gang of gypsy children who are trying to survive the horrors of the Holocaust. ~ Robbie
" I give Milkweed five stars because whatever event or problem happened at the beginning there was another part to it at the end. The story was like a puzzle throughout. Reviewed by Haejin!
