The Diary Of A Young Girl [Abridged For Young Readers] – Anne Frank (Freya, Guest Reviewer)

This book is outstanding…I loved it! The way a 14/15 year-old girl in the time of war could write so normally, when there’s a battle across the world. I wish very much that she was alive today to tell others what it was like in the annexe. I especially like it being a diary, because the author normally writes about their feelings and more detailed events in their lives.

Anne Frank wrote in her diary that no-one would be interested in her – but now, thousands are! I didn’t want the book to end, and I felt upset when it did. It ended suddenly with no goodbyes or anything, as she didn’t know her life was in great danger very soon.

Anne Frank starts writing in her diary soon after her birthday, when she gets it. She then writes about her life; her parents; her sister, Margot and admirers. In a matter of a couple of weeks, a World War was announced, and the Frank family, along with some others, went into hiding. A year went by, and Anne was still in the annexe. In the middle of the book, there are some pictures of her and others who were in hiding with her.

The diary she wrote ended about one year later, when her life was at a sad end.

Overall, I would rate it 10/10.
