A beautifully designed graphic novel bringing to life Kitty, Anne Frank’s imaginary confidant, as she searches for her missing friend in the modern world.

I had no clue when I came back to life, or how it happened. I just know there was a terrible storm outside the house . . .

It's the middle of the night at the Anne Frank House in Amsterdam, when a thunderbolt shatters the glass case holding history’s most famous diary.

Magically, Anne's imaginary friend, Kitty, comes to life. But when Kitty learns that Anne and her beloved sister Margot died in the war 75 years earlier, she decides to run away, taking the diary with her.

Following the path of the sisters all the way to where they met their fatal end, Kitty encounters the European refugee crisis and Anne’s legacy. Join Kitty on her journey of discovery in Where Is Anne Frank . . .
