what book made you cry?

we have always threads about sad movies but what about books?

I cried about
vlinder for marianne (butterfly for marianne?)
der weisse rose (when the disabled childeren were taken away to be killed )
and a book about children in the polish ghetto (the title was something with angels. it was a german book)

In the middle of the night
I go walking in my sleep
Through the desert of the truth
To the river so deep
We all end in the ocean
We all start in the streams
We're all carried along
By the river of dreams
In the middle of the night

"Bridge to Terabithia," one of the best and most sad children's books ever. God, I hated/loved reading that book when I was little.

the title of the book about the children in the polish ghetto is die toten engel. it was so sad when the children tried to escape through a tunnel and they thought they almost made it and looked outside, the germans killed them

I remember trying to read that book in french for school but my french sucked so I stucked with the slang eating an elephant thinking it was a hat. I only discovered that when reading the book in dutch since I had never finished it otherwise

i was reading a book for my GCSE Welsh literature course called 'Cysgod y cryman' its about this ritch boy who goes to uni and turns into a commuinist.There are other sub plots but thats the main story one of the saddest things is his sister is forced to marry this doctor from Liverpool even though shes in love with Karl a worker on the farm who was a prisoner of war from WW2.Even though the farm owners loves him like a son they can't accept his love of their daughter and in the end he has to leave.That was so sad.

I've nearly cried at the end of 'Not Dark Yet' by Nick Maes, a nice, funny and emotional story, and a nice book i recommend.
