Elephant Run is a really good book by,roland smith. It is set in WWII in Burma. It follows a boy, Nick through his adventures with the war.

Soon after arriving at his new home the Japanese attack and take his father. The rest of the workers are held prisoners as the Japanese take over. At first the officer in charge says he will"send him home" but after months it becomes clear this is not the case. With the help of an old monk, a friend, and many others he is able to escape. Taking his friend, Mya and an old monk, he sets of to rescue his father from the prison camp he was put in after being captured. Through a dangerous adventure he ia able to finally be reunited with his family. It's 318 pages long and I was so captivated by it I read it in 2 days of reading whenever I could. I would highly recommend this book.
