  Anne Frank: The Diary of a Young Girl by Anne Frank

Review by: Grace B.
Kentucky, Grade 6

It indepthly explains the life of a young person in hiding from the Nazis during World War 2 and it explains how a person grows emotionally based on the enviroment that they live in.

I liked this book because of how it made me think. I started it in the third grade and have since read it thourughly two times. This story is about a girl who really lived named Anne Frank. She is growing up in Amsterdam, Holland during the time of the Nazi occupation. Her family is Jewish and as a result are subject to persecution based on their beliefs, but they managed to make the most of their lives anyway. Anne is a social butterfly she has many girl and boy friends and one particularly interesting boyfriend named Harry. Everything seems to be going fine (for the most part) until Anne's sister Margot get's a call up to go to a Nazi concentration camp! Now the family must go into hiding with the help of some very faithful friends. I liked this book because it made me think about what terrible things like war can do to the human spirit and how lucky I am that my soul has yet to be tarnished. I liked this book, because it made me think, when you read it I wonder what you'll like it for?
