An all time classic. I really believe that every girl starting around 13 or 14 should read this book. So truthful and the emotions and things Anne went through just being a teenage girl still ring true. First loves, first kisses, puberty it's all there and relatable.
My 10 yr old daughter read this book and is now obsessed! She can't stop talking about it and it's been 6 months since she read it!
Although I originally read "Anne Frank: The Diary of a Young Girl" in grade school, re-reading it as an adult was even more moving. As a young girl, I hadn't yet grasped the magnitude of the Holocaust. After re-reading it, I've realized what a wonderful classic this book is. It not only describes a young Jewish girl's life during the Holocaust but also tells about the most intimate feelings a person can feel. I highly recommend this book and hope to visit the Anne Frank museum where the family lived during this time.
I actually got to go to the secret annex in 2005 and it really brought this book to life for me. I was in awe the whole time, and when I got back home, I read the book again. The annex is just like how it was when Anne's family lived there with the exception of protection of her pictures and missing of some furniture, but the bookshelf is still there, and you aren't allowed up in the attic for safety reasons, but you can look up there. Very amazing...a must read for everyone about the holocaust.
This is the heartbreaking story of Anne Frank, who hid in an attic with her family and another family to escape the Nazis. Otto Frank, the father, was the only one out of the family to survive the concentration camps, and he published his daughter's diary. An excellent book.
