Summary

Touching a painting sends a girl on a suspenseful adventure in this spooky tale by the author of The Phantom Music Box. 
 
Don’t touch anything in the Haunted Museum! 
 
When Lily accidentally touches a painting at The Haunted Museum, she’s pulled into a dangerous fight for her life! The more she learns about the history of the portraits she’d been mesmerized by, the more she finds about the artist who painted them and the girls in the paintings. All the girls seem to have disappeared—but where? Tears on the portraits, dreams about the girls in the pictures—what could it mean? And what happens to Lily if her portrait is painted?

    "Moving and utterly enthralling" - Lissa Evans
    As life for German Jews becomes increasingly perilous, Anna's parents put her on a train leaving for England. But the war follows her to Kent, and soon Anna finds herself caught up in a web of betrayal and secrecy. How can she prove whose side she's on when she can't tell anyone the truth? But actions speak louder than words, and Anna has a dangerous plan...
    A brilliant and moving wartime adventure from the author of Evie's Ghost.
    Cover illustration by Daniela Terrazzini.
    "Because I believed in Anna, her war came alive for me. Her struggle, her bravery, all those things were completely real and I read the book overnight, unable to put it down. Magnificent, brilliant, heartbreaking." - Fleur Hitchcock, author of Murder in Midwinter
    "A fast-paced adventure, whose elegant prose and cliffhanger chapters should keep even less confident readers gripped to the thrilling end." - Emily Bearn, Daily Telegaph
    "It's a tale of bravery and loss that Helen Peters (Evie's Ghost) sets out with the light touch that only rigorous research allow... Peters tells Anna's story of escape with great humanity, and this novel is an excellent way to whet young appetites for classics such as When Hitler Stole Pink Rabbit by Judith Kerr and Carrie's War by Nina Bawden." - Alex O'Connell, The Times, Children's Book of the Week
    "Anna at War is a gripping, moving piece of historical fiction." - Imogen Russell Williams,  Guardian
    "Helen Peters balances adventure and intrigue with this emotional coming-of-age story." - Emma Dunn and Sarah Mallon, Scotsman
