1 thought on “Books with the Character’s Name in the Title”

  1. I highly recommend “Margot” by Jillian Cantor which is what would have happened if Margot Frank – sister of Anne Frank escaped the Nazis. She tries to assimilate in Philadelphia and hide her true identity, which becomes much harder when The Diary of Anne Frank is published and everyone is talking about it. Excellent book club read. Enjoy!
