This book sounded really wonderful but I was a little wary that it was just trying to trade in on the Anne Frank name. That was true to a tiny extent but not in any kind of bad way. Really the story didn't need an Anne Frank connection, the stories of each classmate was fascinating on it's own but perhaps they wouldn't have been told without the connection.

However, just because a story is wonderful doesn't mean the story-teller is capable of doing it justice. This was a little bit like listening to my Grandpa (bless his heart). The facts are interesting but it's a chore trying to sort out any kind of timeline/continuity/character/etc. I was confused about who was who pretty much the whole book.
