Annemarie and Ellen

Chapter 1
Pages 1-10
By:Joselyn Chaves

Ellen raced her friend Annemarie. They were both ten years old. Annemarie wanted to race Ellen really badly but she was ignoring her because every time they race Annemarie always win and Ellen loses. Annemarie was begging Ellen like crazy to run down town to a corner so Ellen gave her a chance. So Ellen said "ready set.. GO!!!" So they ran down the corner until then a guy with hudge boots on and yelled at Ellen and Annemarie asking what they were doing until you hear in the background some little girl yelling "Wait for me!!" It turns out to be Annemaire little sister. she always goes where ever Annemarie goes.Then comes to other guys with a pistol and big boots too. Ellen was backing up in the background she was really pail and scared like crazy. The soldier asked Annemaire "what is your name?" Annemarie said "My name is Annemarie Johansen and my friends name is Ellen." my questions are why does Anniemaries little sister fallow her alot. Why does Annemaire want to race Ellen if Annemarie knows that she runs way faster than her. I think this book is going to have a very bad ending if Ellen doesnt servive from the Military people.

While Annemarie's mother was out with Kristi, Ellen and Annemarie were playing with paper dolls made from old magazines. They were playing Gone With the Wind. Suddenly the door opened to Annemarie's apartment, and there was Kirsti stompping her feet. Kristi was so mad at her mother. Her mother had bought her a pair of green shoes made from fish. Then, Ellen suggested, "In our apartment, my father has a jar of black ink. Would you like these shoes if they were black?" Kirsti thought about it and agreed. Then, Kirsti wanted to play Gone with the Wind with the girls. Annemarie had to say yes, or she knew her mother would get mad. Then, Ellen had to go help her mother with house cleaning, because Thursday is their New Year because they're Jewish. Then, Ellen invited Annemarie and her family to come to their house to eat, and celebrate their New Year.Ellen's mother put a cloth over her head and said a prayer in Hebrew. On Thursday, Ellen had to go to church with her family instead of staying in school. Then, later on, Mrs.Rosen(Ellen's mom) came and knocked on the door, she didn't come in, but Annemarie's mom came outside the apartment door to talk to her. She had a worried face, but a cheerful voice. She told Annemarie and Kirsti that Ellen was going to stay with them for a few days. The girls would sleep in Kirsti's and Annemarie's room, while Kirsti slept in her mother's room. Then, after dinner, Annemarie, her papa and Ellen talked in the living room. The nazis were capturiing all the Jewish people, so They were trying to hide Ellen, while her parents, go somewhere else to hide, that they didn't know. Ellen would act as Lise, their old daughter that had died before. Then Annemarie's father comforted Ellen by saying, "Once i had three daughters. Tonight I am proud to have three daughters again."

In this chapter, basically uncle Henrik explains to Annemarie about lying and how sometimes people have to in order to help them. Sometimes people need to lie for safety of others or themselves. Annemarie knew that her mom was lying about great Aunt Birta. She wanted to tell Ellen, but even she knew she couldn't. Eventually men brought in a casket where "Great Aunt Birta" was in. But, Annemarie knew that it was really empty. Then, a few people started entering the house. Annemarie's mom said it was friends of Great Aunt Birta.
