A childhood friend of Anne Frank, Hannah Goslar, recounts their childhood together as well as her own personal hell in a Nazi concentration camp. Hannah goes through her & Anne's history including schooling, parties, & their ping pong club called "The Little Dipper Minus Two" which was based on the constellation except they did not realize the Dipper had 7 stars and there were only 5 ping pong club members. Hannah also shares the moment where she learned her friend had not survived - information she learned from Otto Frank.

I will read anything about Anne Frank that I can get my hands on as she has been my idol for a very long time. Learning intimate details of her life growing up made me better understand Anne as a person. Hearing the details of Hannah's time in the concentration camps made me better understand the conditions that people underwent while the Frank family was in hiding for 25 months. This is a book I will be adding to my personal library.
