Everyone knows about Anne Frank, and her life hidden in the secret annexe - or do they? Peter van Pels and his family are locked away in there with the Franks, and Peter sees it all differently. He's a boy, and for a boy it's just not the same. What is it like to be forced into hiding with Anne Frank, to hate her and then find yourself falling in love with her? To know you're being written about in her diary, day after day? What's it like to sit and wait and watch whilst others die, and you wish you were fighting? How can Anne and Peter try to make sense of one of the most devastating episodes in recent history - the holocaust? Anne's diary ends on August 4 1944, but Peter's story takes us on, beyond their betrayal and into the Nazi death camps. He details with accuracy, clarity and compassion, the reality of day to day survival in Auschwitz - and the terrible conclusion. It's a story rooted firmly in history and it asks a question of us all: Are we listening? 'Is anybody there?' Peter cries from the depths of his despair in the camps. Read it, and you will be.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"Amazing... I enjoyed this book very much." * Pam_TeenBlogger *
"A delicate, poised and scrupulous re-enactment." -- Mal Peet * Guardian *
"Dogar's decision to write the novel from Peter's point of view is inspired. (His) story is complex and moving (and) his voice is eloquent." -- Irish Times * John Boyne *
"Dogar has . . . done the memory of Anne Frank a great service" * Mal Peet *
"Dogar has been utterly respectful . . . [Annexed is] an author trying to get her head around a time of atrocity and how it perhaps felt for one ordinary young man in extraordinary circumstances." -- Keith Gray * The Scotsman *
