Everything is Illuminated by Jonathan Safran Foer

A beautiful, heartbreaking novel about searching for the past and finding yourself. Alex is the young Ukrainian who helps Jonathan on his search for the woman who saved his grandfather from the Nazis. Alex writes to Jonathan with his chapters about the search and Jonathan intersperses them with chapters about his family's history. Incredibly sad and really makes you think about the real meaning of good and evil.

Highly Recommended
