The first person account really shows what this young girl had to go through just to stay alive. It can be related to many things that are occuring now throughout the world. Many say she's a modern Anne Frank, and I agree!

This book is very passionately written as a diary, day by day, in the life of a child who goes from living a normal life to one of war, making do with what you have, bombing, noise, no school, no outings.. This book is a reminder to all of us who live in a "peaceful" society of what happens to children during wartime. I read "The diary of Anne Frank" as a teen, but this really brought it home to me.
