Reviews of Nonfiction Books Anne Frank: The Diary of a Young Girlby Anne Frank
Review by: Cassie H.
Iowa, Grade 11
Anne Frank was a young girl who was hiding from the Nazis with her family and these people she didn't know at all. She would write a diary to get all of her anger out and what she felt and how she felt about the Van Daans and how Mrs. Van Daan was judging her by her personality. Mrs. Van Daan was saying that she was spoiled and that she got her way all the time.
I love the book because it gave a lot of detail on how she lived her life during the Holocaust. Anne talked about how she had to be so quiet the whole time they were hiding from the Nazis for so long. She was a fun girl to read about and read how hard her life was to live. She talked about having to hide and not be able to live in her own home. She had to hide so she did't get killed and taken away and starved to death. I recommend this book to anyone who likes to read about the Holocaust and what it means to experience this in a personal way.
