Summary

This detailed account of the Amsterdam annex where Anne Frank wrote her diary includes the stories of those who helped her and those who hid with her. For two years during the Second World War, young, Jewish Anne Frank lived in hiding from the Nazis. Everything she experienced, thought, and felt, she confided in her diary. She was just as frank in her descriptions of the seven other people in the Annex and of the five helpers who endangered their own lives to look after them. Years later, Anne Frank’s diary became world famous. The Secret Annex was so well set up that the hiders survived there for over two years. Who were these people, how did they meet, and what happened to them?   This book shows the background and organization of the Annex and the personal stories of all involved, as well as their relationships and their fates. It also offers many never-before-published photographs. The result is an extraordinary group portrait that stays with the reader long after the last page is turned.

    "An engaging, action-packed and memorable techno/thriller for young readers." -- MidwestBook Review "[Makes] important political and environmental statements as well as providing pure entertainment." -- KLIATT "Most young readers would like to follow the MacGregors into these exotic lands and adventures." -- Sunday Oklahoman A quaint shop in the heart of old Cairo, a lost subterranean chamber, or even Seti's exquisite temple may give up the clue that will solve the mystery of the Falcon of Abydos, the sky god. Just when Egyptologists believe that the last of the great discoveries have been made, the MacGregor family unveils a secret that could lead to a major war and forever change the history of Egypt. While Dr. Jack MacGregor is attending classes and speaking about environmental problems at an international summit, wife Mavis, sons Chris, 17, and Ryan, 12, and daughter Heather, 14, set out to discover what secrets the Sahara holds. They encounter old and new enemies, including a man out for revenge, Egyptian mobsters who may have ties to terrorists, and former Russian secret police trying to steal high-tech weapons. In this third book in the MacGregor Family Adventure Series, Richard Trout has once again devised a "techno-thriller" story that will keep young readers reaching for their flashlights as they find themselves caught in the dark among the tombs of ancient pharaohs.

    From two New York Times–bestselling authors, a group of young people go to the International Space Station on a mission to save earth from alien invasion.   It was supposed to be just an educational field trip to the Challenger Learning Center, but JJ Wren and her friends find themselves transported into the future, to a time when the human race is under siege from deadly alien invaders. The evil Kylarn have shifted the orbits of three asteroids, sending them tumbling toward Earth—and a direct impact will have devastating consequences. With instructions and skills they learn from the mysterious Commander Zota, JJ and her fellow Star Challengers embark on a mission to the asteroids before it's too late, hoping to divert the giant rocks before they strike Earth. But the alien invaders aren't the only enemy—the Star Challengers have to worry about human traitors, too!   Praise for The Star Challengers series:   “The Star Challengers with their Commander Zota ‘boldly go into the future’ to bring great science fiction adventures to readers. . . .
