Buried Words: The Diary of Molly Applebaum by Molly Applebaum

Hidden away underground, in a box, twelve-year-old Molly has only her older cousin and her diary to keep her company. For two years, she writes of her confinement “in a grave”: the cold, dark and stuffiness, the unbearable suffering from insufficient food, and the complicated reliance on the two farmers who are risking their own lives to save her. Buried Words is a stark confession of Molly’s fears, despair and secrets and, above all, her fervent wish to stay alive.
