I absolutely loved this book. Ever since I read Sarah's Key, I've been interested in the Holocaust. I've never read Anne Frank's diary, but I still found this novel fascinating and eye-opening.

The Anne Frank story re-imagined from the point of view of Peter, the teenage boy who lived in the Annex with the Frank family. "Peter's voice is haunting and heartbreaking. His pleas for people to remember, to believe, will stay with you long after the book has ended."--Kyla Paterno
