Annexed by Sharon Dogar
Anne Frank wasn't alone in the annex where she hid for two years before being found by the Nazis. Her family shared the space with Peter Van Pels and his family. This book, based on the real events that are known about Peter and Anne, is told from Peter's point of view. Unhappy about leaving his girlfriend behind to go into hiding, Peter feels like he should be doing something to help Jewish resistance fighters. At first annoyed by Anne's constant chatter Peter eventually grows to love her while admiring her dedication to telling their story for future generations. But when they are all arrested and taken to the death camps Peter must find his own way to survive the terrible things that are happening there.
