Interesting and brave book that deals with the premise that Peter lived,and what he did with that life as as survivor.It fascinated me how the character repressed and then discovered truths both real and some distorted about himself and family. Would recommend this book, it has a lot to say.

Man, when I first saw my dad's girlfriend read it, I told her that she had to let me borrow it. I really got into this book, and I couldn't even stop reading it! I really wish that it wasn't a novel, but the real thing that happenend to him. I even forgot that Ellen even wrote the book! I totally recommend this book, but not for anyone who is under 12. All I have to say for this book is: OUTSTADING!

I loved this book. I could not put it down and read it in one sitting. It intermingles so much of the 'Diary' and his imagnined life that you get truly engrossed in believing it's real.

I recently read this title with my book club. This book could have been a really great story. The concept was fabulous.I wish the author would have spent more time on Peter's past life or with his current family life. Peter seems more focused on his mental problems than anything else. The 'Diary of Anne Frank' is such a well known story. This book will benefit from the association, but is a bit of a let down.
