I don't see the story.
Some similes that might be in your story:
It was as cold as Antarctica!
Watching the show was like watching grass grow.
He is as strong as an ox!
They fight like cats and dogs.
They slept like a dog.
We are as busy as a bee.
she means her and her family and the other people are hiding in darkness and it is scary to think about getting caught
This simile shows that she sees the annex as an oasis in the middle of the desert. Everything inside the annex is good and nice whereas the world around them is falling into chaos and I think she sees that its only a matter of time before the fear of being taken to a camp become a reality. The menacing clouds signify fear and ominousness
A metaphor does not use comparison words
Personification is giving nonhuman things human characteristics
Hyperbole uses exaggeration
Alliteration is the repetition of an initial consonant sound
Hope this helps
If you're making a comparison without using like or as, then it will be called a metaphor. :)
