In July 1942, thirteen-year-old Anne Frank and her family, fleeing the horrors of Nazi occupation, went into hiding in an Amsterdam warehouse. Over the next two years Anne vividly describes not only the daily frustrations of living in such close quarters, but also her thoughts, feelings and longings as she grows up. Her diary ends abruptly and tragically when, in August 1944, Anne and her family were all finally betrayed. The Diary of a Young Girl by Anne Frank remains the single most poignant story to emerge from the Second World War, and her diary has come to symbolize not only the horrors of the Holocaust but the strength of the human spirit in adversity.

              I'd think I would like this book. It sounds like it teleports you to the past.

                I really love history, and historical fiction. This book was in the WWII time period and the perspective of a young jewish girl. This book reminds me of a real version of Odette's Secret.

                  It was a great book, but I wouldn't recommend it to someone who likes silly or immature stuff.

                    I had to read this book for a school project and I was thinking "Oh, great another one of those wannabe real history books," which I do not like. So I read the book. I'm a fast reader and I can remember things very well, but when I read this book it was so hard to grasp the very thought of what was going on. It's one thing to read a book where some characters are real and some are not, but in this book everyone was real. They had thoughts, feelings, and did things with there lives before the Nazis came. I had to read it three times before I really could get a feeling for it. Her story is so emotional, I don't know how she dealt with everything around her. From problems with her mom, a crush on a boy, and then sharing a room with a grown man! It must have been hard. I recommend this book to people who like to read.

                      This book is so meaningful. It's down to earth, but at the same time, I can't imagine anything that Anne went through happening to me. Anne is a real girl during the Holocaust. She lived a regular life, and then WWII started up. Her family and several others were forced into hiding to avoid concentration camps, commonly known as Nazi death camps. Hitler was insane and prejudiced against Jews. He felt that their religion was an excuse to treat them horribly. Anne's and several other families hid in a storehouse, which was owned by a friend of their's who was not a Jew. As Anne pours her heart out to her diary, which she calls Kitty, we can feel the weight of thousands of people on our shoulders. We weep for those who were lost in WWII and those who lost loved ones. Anne go's through her teenage years hidden away, years she should have been able to spend with friends. Hitler started a war, and then, after generations of lives were lost, he killed himself. This book would be a hard subject for kids under 4th grade to read. Thank you.
