This is the true story of two best friends, one of whom was Anne Frank. Since their first meeting at school in Amsterdam in September 1941, Jacqueline van Maarsen and Anne Frank were inseparable. Although the anti-Jewish laws meant that there were few activities open to them, the girls still had a lot of fun together. They made a pact: that if one of them had to go away, then they would write the other a letter of farewell. Then, suddenly, Anne disappeared. Shortly after, Jacqueline's own life changed dramatically. Her father was Jewish, but her mother was not, and Mrs van Maarsen was able to persuade the authorities that they were not really Jewish - and so Jacqueline was able to take off the yellow star which all Jews had to wear. Jacqueline van Maarsen gives a fascinating and moving account of her friendship with Anne and the effect of her sudden disappearance. She vividly describes how she and her own family lived through the Nazi occupation and how, at the end of the war, she was finally able to read the promised farewell letter from her very best friend, Anne Frank. Written by Jacqueline van Maarsen and adapted for children by Carol Ann Lee, this will appeal to all the millions of fans of The Diary of Anne Frank.
