This is the diary by Anne Frank, a young Jewish girl. Her family had to leave Amsterdam and hide from the approaching Nazis. When their location was discovered, they were forced to hide in an office building. This diary demonstrates the transition from being a young girl to being a young lady, during one of the most horrific times in the world’s history. Anne Frank turned thirteen years old, when she started writing in her now infamous diary. In it she documents her daily life over the course of two years. She honestly writes about the details of the events that her family went through, as well as the emotions she and the seven others felt being trapped in the office building. What started out as innocent diary entries, typical for anyone her age, quickly turned into a documentary of the constant fear of being discovered mixed with the physical pains of being in hiding. This book will change readers’ lives. Notes: This review was written for My Sister's Books. This review was originally posted on the Ariesgrl Book Reviews site.
