The Diary of a Young Girl
In Amsterdam, in the summer of 1942, the Nazis forced teenager Anne Frank and her family into hiding. For over two years, they, another family and a German dentist lived in a 'secret annexe', fearing discovery. All that time, Anne kept a diary. An intimate record of tension and struggle, adolescence and confinement, anger and heartbreak, Anne Frank's diary is one of those unique documents, famed throughout the world, that portrays innocence and humanity, suffering and survival in the starkest and most moving terms.

As i started to read this book i knew i would be moved to search more into Anne Franks life and how if it wasn't for the war Anne would have lived a longer life. it moved me to emotion when i read the end chapter called the legacy of Anne frank. in some respects i sympathised with Anne on aspects about her mother that she stated. This Diary of a Young Girl has exceptionally funny bits ( imagine! these bits were actually lived through) and sad bits. so sad it moves you to tears. You are able to get angry that anyone would make someone retreat into hiding. And some parts were you go "aah thats cute" and parts were you are in stitches with laughter.
Anne Frank may not have lead a long life bit in those dozen years or so she lived through many emotions from fear to anger, to joy and sadness.
For You Anne.
This book offers a powerful incite to the life of Anne Frank. Her diary is hard to put down and creates an amazing incite into a life in hiding. A MUST READ !
