"Echo" by Pam Munoz Ryan

This large novel weaves the stories of three children together through the journey of a special harmonica.

The very start of the book makes it seem like a fantasy novel, but after the first few pages establish that the harmonica is magical, the rest of the novel has a more realistic feel to it.

Themes include: the judgement of others and wanting to belong.  Nazi Germany and the Japanese internment are both woven into the story, but done so in a way that is appropriate for a pre-teen reader.

This is a good read for anyone capable of a book so big!
