CO-AUTHOR ANNE FRANK BEYOND THE DIARY 

"With its combination of family photographs (many reproduced here for the first time), biographical sketches of Anne Frank and the others in the "Secret Annex,'' and brief essays identifying specific stages of the Holocaust, this astonishing book moves past symbolism to disentangle the real Anne Frank from mythography. (...) A superb exploration of the particular and the universal meanings of a seminal work."  PUBLISHER'S WEEKLY

Winner of the Christopher Award, ALA Notable Book, A YALSA Best Book for Young Adults, Mildred L. Batchelder Honor Book, German State Prize for Youth Literature.
