    1. Without the horrible made up story about Margot Frank, this could have been a nice story. Now it's just a lie, covered in a historical-fiction, made up by yet another young American woman who writes about the Holocaust. I hope people will remember the real history about Margot, Anne and their family. How both girls died in Bergen-Belsen, a month before the liberation. I want to invite the writer to visit the Anne Frank House in Amsterdam to see the picture of Otto Frank, standing in the attic, o [...]


    2. I received the book for free through First Reads.Tonight I came home from work, fed my critters, and at about 6pm I picked up this book and started reading it. While I was reading it I occasionally thought I was a little hungry but I kept reading. And once or twice I thought I was maybe thirsty. But I kept reading. It's now just after 8:30 and I have just finished this book.Yes. It was that good.Sometimes when you read a story about historical events you gain a sense of what they may have been [...]


    3. Read my full review: bit/14Y6y5GMy opinion: OMGI loved this book! Normally, I am not a fan of fictional revisionist history. The majority of them I have read, there was NO WAY that the story EVER could have happened and I found myself constantly rolling my eyes, but this one worked. One could see this happening. There was nothing over the top about the story that the author portrays. I wholeheartedly disagree with a couple of reviewers who call this book light and chicklit"ish". There was nothi [...]


    4. Admittedly and quite cowardly, I have refrained from reading or watching anything surrounding the Holocaust most of my entire life. I would walk by displays in my elementary library as a child that would highlight the "Diary of Anne Frank" and I was afraid of it. i have generally treated it as a part of our history that I wish I could pretend never really happened, but that doesn't honor or respect the lives and memories that were forever altered by horrific acts.For someone with my hesitancy, J [...]


    5. "I have been hiding for so long that it has become all I am. And I realize I am not even truly certain why I am still hiding, except now it is all I know."**I knew nothing about the book Margot until I attended a Penguin event this spring, and met the lovely author Jillian Cantor. I remember her telling me about her book and thinking that it sounded like a fascinating and moving concept, but in my head, I was pretty sure that I'd never read it for myself. Mostly, because it seemed like an incred [...]


    6. I should have trusted my gut! I wasn't interested in this book when if first came out ---given it was a fictionalized Historical Holocaust story. (I had my doubts) ---but???I was sitting by a pool not long ago when I saw a woman reading it (didn't know the woman) --asked if she liked it ---She said 'yes'.(I downloaded it onto my Kindle within 30 seconds). I wanted to enjoy this book! I always want to enjoy the book I'm reading. (I think I'm pretty 'easy' to please) ---Yet--I was bored with this [...]


    7. We all know and remember who Anne Frank was, but do you remember Margot? She was Anne's sister, who was also hiding in the secret annex, but not much is known or heard about her. What if What if Margot didn't die in Bergen-Belsen? What if she managed to escape, survive?What if she is now Margie Franklin, a secretary in Philadelphia?What is she had to leave everything behind and continuehidingeven though the war is over?I think this was my first Historical Fiction book and I finished it not only [...]


    8. "And let us not forget Margot, who kept her own diary, which was never found."- Miep GiesWhile I really enjoyed Cantor's Searching for Sky, I absolutely fell head over heels for her historical retelling Margot. Margot hit me on a much more personal and emotional level than her other novel did, as well as leaving me with a lot to think about too.If you've read Anne Frank's The Diary of a Young Girl, you'll remember that Anne has an older sister named Margot, who has somewhat been forgotten in his [...]


    9. This novel re-imagines Anne Frank’s sister’s experience in post WWII America. Margot Frank – who now calls herself Margie Franklin and is working at a Philadelphia based Jewish law firm -- has been hiding her identity as well as what happened between her and her sister. As Anne’s popularity grows, Margie’s life begins to fall apart -- her future in America is at stake unless she is able to come to terms with what happened in her previous life. This book asks the question – How do you [...]


    10. The idea of this book is really compelling, and the story itself is developed pretty well. But the writing itself fell a bit short for me -- there were some over-wrought motifs and images that I'm hoping a sensitive editor will tone down in the final version. But it's definitely worth reading and draws you in. So compelling, in fact, that I risked getting a parking ticket to run into my job where I left it on my day off. I was there for exactly one minute, and alas, my risk was a poor one. C'est [...]


    11. The Diary of Anne Frank has been beloved since its publication in 1947, with several film versions made and shifted perspectives written. But Jillian Cantor’s Margot is both a retelling and an alternate history of the original story recorded in Anne Frank’s diary. Cantor imagines a scenario where Margot Frank does not perish in Bergen-Belsen, but survives the Holocaust and begins a new life as Margie Franklin, working as a law secretary in Philadelphia. Though she tries desperately to hide h [...]


    12. 4.5 starsThough World War II era fiction of just about any sort has a high level of appeal for me, I’m wary of these “what if?” stories. It seems there are so many ways in which they could go wrong. In this case, I needn’t have worried, however, for Jillian Cantor handles this subject matter respectfully, beautifully, and cleverly.Read the full review at A Reader of Fictions


    13. Originally posted at shaelit/2013/09/reviewIn the spring of 1959, The Diary of Anne Frank has just come to the silver screen to great acclaim, and a young woman named Margie Franklin is working in Philadelphia as a secretary at a Jewish law firm. On the surface she lives a quiet life, but Margie has a secret: a life she once lived, a past and a religion she has denied, and a family and a country she left behind.Margie Franklin is really Margot Frank, older sister of Anne, who did not die in Be [...]


    14. We’ve all read Anne Frank’s Diary – required reading for most in our teens. Author Jillian Cantor adds a twist to the harrowing story we know. She asks the question: what if Anne’s older sister Margot actually survived? What if she made it to America?That question, alone, is enough to carry the story and entice the reader to keep reading. Yet Cantor ramps up the tension and like a skilled juggler, tosses multiple storylines and conflicts into the novel—each (which I can’t share with [...]


    15. This is the first time I've read a piece of historical fiction and thought "too soon!" I suppose it should always be weird and uncomfortable, making up thoughts and experiences for people that actually existed. But there's something particularly discomforting about a novel that retcons a teenage girl's tragic death in the holocaust (still a relatively recent event!) into a romance/mystery where she survives.In addition, I was uncomfortable with Margot's portrayal - she wasn't just a holocaust su [...]


    16. I have read two other books that were similar in many ways to this one: Annexed, by Sharon Dugar, which is a diary written from Peter Van Pele's point of view, and Helen Keller in Love: A Novel, about the purported romance between Helen Keller and a reporter named Peter Fagan. All three of these books were great, but I think Margot was my favorite of the three. So little is known or has been written about Margot, but we feel like we know her through Anne's diary, and the books that have been wri [...]


    17. I really did not like this book. The premise is that Anne Frank's sister, Margot, survives the war and moves to Philadelphia, pretending to be a Christian woman named Margie from Europe. The year is 1959, the same year the movie version of her sister's book arrived in theaters. "Margie" works for a Jewish law firm (she's a secretary) that suddenly decides they want to defend Jews from WWII who are being persecuted by their "Nazi" boss.Meanwhile, Margie's inner dialogue reveals that it was HER - [...]


    18. I was lucky enough to attend a book event in NYC a couple of months ago, where I received (and had signed by Jillian!) an ARC of Margot. This is a spectacular novel. Jillian has done an incredible job shedding some, albeit fictitious, light on a widely over looked historical figure. Margot, or "Margie", is the older sister of Anne Frank and this novel is from her point of view as it may have been after the holocaust, had she survived it. A very confused and frightened, yet endearing young woman [...]


    19. This was suppose to be a tribute to Margot Frank; but, it made her look like a dumb, obsessive girl. Margot Frank was in reality smart and a devout Jew.She would not have traveled to America and pretended to be Christian all because her teenage crush told her to. Would she have not really reached out to her father for slights? Really? It would have been nice to see a book about how she became a midwife in Israel (an actual dream of her's) and her father kept her life a secret from the public. La [...]


    20. Can you hide from your past and change who you are? If you try, what do you risk losing? Those are some of the questions thoughtfully explored in this novel that proposes an alternative history in which Margot Frank, sister of Anne Frank, survives the Holocaust and moves to Philadelphia. Great book club choice.


    21. An amazing fictional tale of the story of Margot Frank, Anne Frank's sister, who escaped the nazis and started over in America. This story is haunting me.


    22. I genuinely don't know how to rate this. Maybe 3.5 stars?It's not a bad story, by any means. I still have issues with it, some related to the story itself, and some just to the concept. I have to say, I think the last quarter of the book is definitely the strongest, though I wish the last chapter had been slightly more.The narrative itself is good. Not perfect, but solid. It was an emotional book, and I thought Margot's emotions and feelings (her fears and tentative affections, her hesitations a [...]


    23. I was so very fortunate to be able to read an ARC of The Lost Letter. That book was one of the very best books I have ever read! I wanted to read more by the author. Margot is a story about Anne Frank's older sister and if she hadn't died in WW2. It was a beautifully written tragic story. It is a story of what ifs, of family, and of having to hide ones true self. It is also a book of redemption and learning to move on. I truly loved it!


    24. *THIS REVIEW CONTAINS A FEW SPOILERS* Back-Story: I was fortunate enough to win this book off of First Reads. It came within a few weeks which surprised me because the other book I’ve won took eight weeks.Review: Fantastic. Incredible. Amazing. Intriguing. These are words I would use to describe this book. It is completely fictional, but it kind of feels like it could be true. Like maybe Margot didn’t die at Bergen-Belsen. Maybe she lived and moved to America and started a new life. That’ [...]


    25. MARGOT is an imagining of what might have happened if Anne Frank’s sister Margot had survived. It takes place in 1959 in Philadelphia, where Margot has recreated her life as Margie Franklin. In an attempt to outrun her past, she has forsaken her religion, and simply wishes to blend in to American society. The horrid tattoo on her forearm that she must cover at all costs and in all seasons, however, is a constant reminder and a kind of extended incarceration she experiences at the hands of the [...]


    26. Most of this book was really good. The writing was lovely, the research seemed to be solid, the premise was really intriguing.But the way she went about it was all wrong. Instead of giving us the Margot from Anne's diary (smart, sweet, and very close to Anne), we get Margie, who is jealous of Anne, doesn't tell her father she's alive, and says that Anne's diary was made up. She actually says that Anne's diary is made-up. Do you want to know why? Because of Peter. Peter! Apparently Margot was the [...]


    27. I absolutely adored MARGOT by Author Jillian Cantor​. Truly a must read.It's a what if story: what if Anne Frank's sister, Margot, never died during the Holocaust, and was instead passing as a Gentile in 1959 America, just as Diary of Anne Frank hits movie screens? Cantor's writing is gorgeous, and what's more, she's imagined every last detail. Margot (now Margie Franklin) would have to wear a sweater every day, even in the heat, to cover up her tattooed Concentration Camp number, she'd need a [...]


    28. This novel exceeds at being quiet but loud at the same time. The main character, Anne Frank's older sister, is so painfully drawn into herself that she almost disappears. Suffering from what must be PTSD, she is pulled so taut with fear that you can almost hear her vibrate. But in her innermost thoughts she confronts and defeats huge demons; not the demons of yesterday (the Nazis), but demons of self such as fear of being brave, fear of standing out, fear of being different, fear of standing up [...]


    29. This story is incredibly moving. I had heard many good things about the book and was anxious to read it. I was not disappointed. Not only was the story compelling but the writing was amazing. I was swept away from the start.There is not much information on Margot Frank but the author stayed true to what is available in developing her character. Ms. Cantor took the little that was known and crafted a captivating character. Margie’s fears and insecurities felt very real. I wondered at some point [...]


    30. I'm in the minority on this one. I know lots of other people loved this book, but it just didn't work for me.The writing is terrific and the research first rate, but Margot is depressed with a bad case of PTSD. Being in her head was all darkness, doom and gloom. She couldn't whip up a positive opinion for anyone, not for Shelby, her goofy but mostly inoffensive co-worker, not for Ilsa and Bertram, the couple who'd fostered her in America, not even for her cat. After she dissed her own tabby for [...]
