Grisha lives in Russia His mother died when he was just a little boy. His coat is made from his mothers own coat. He loves his coat because he can feel his mother inside.
Grisha had to leave Russia because the cossacks were coming to kill anyone who is Jewish.
So his grandpa said we had to go to America. and they had to make a good impression otherwise they would probably be separated forever. so they went to America. Grisha had a piece of paper and a pencil that he found on the ground and started drawing to the story his cousin had been telling. his cousin’s name is Rachel. Rachel and Grisha loved telling stories together.
I love this book because it is such an awesome story of courage and i think you should read it!
