The Silenced is uniqu. would recommend this book to students and libraries for its unique approach and readability, and I believe it could be well used in a literature or social studies class to approach an introduction to Holocaust Education - Shoah Education. The gripping plot will engage readers and raise fundamental questions about individual responsibility and the cost of conscience. The book keeps up a fast pace that will appeal to teen readers.
Details (if other): Cancel. Thanks for telling us about the problem.
James DeVita was not interested in putting in the work to make this a believable dystopia, and so it's not believable. It feels like he cribbed it from the Holocaust-and he did. Even worse, it's not until towards the very end of the book that I felt a clear sense of danger or feared for Marena's safety or life. Most of the time, when she resisted-it didn't feel immediate.

Emphasizing homogeneous thinking and personal appearance, the Protectorate restricts basic rights and freedoms and the idea of individuality is strictly forbidden
