Annie's Story

267 pages5 hours


This is a story of love and courage, and of growing up enough to face the truth – and to speak it. During the summer of 1990, seventeen-year-old Annie Maitlin decides she is tired of living in her small California town. She wants something different, something that will make her life just a little more important before she leaves. What happens is more than Annie could have imagined. She meets and falls in love with a Jewish boy, and she quickly learns what life is like for others. Her friends, as well as her own parents, reveal their narrow-mindedness and fears. White supremacy and Neo-Nazism find a home in her small town. And what begins as harmless childish pranks and petty jealousies escalates to violence.
