The little liar : a novel / Mitch Albom.

Albom, Mitch, 1958- (author.).


"Eleven-year-old Nico Crispi never told a lie. When the Nazi's invade his home in Salonika, Greece, the trustworthy boy is discovered by a German officer, who offers him a chance to save his family. All Nico has to do is persuade his fellow Jewish residents to board trains heading "north," where new jobs and safety await. Unaware that this is all a cruel ruse, the innocent boy reassures passengers on the station platform every day. But when the final train is loaded, Nico sees his family being herded into a boxcar. Only then does he discover that he has helped send them--and everyone he knows and loves--to their doom at Auschwitz. Nico escapes--but he never tells the truth again."-- Jacket flap.
