Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Anne Frank's The Diary of a Young Girl is among the most enduring documents of the twentieth century. Since its publication in 1947, it has been read by tens of millions of people all over the world. It remains a beloved and deeply admired testament to the indestructible nature of the human spirit. Anne was first and foremost a teenage girl, not a remote and flawless symbol. She fretted about and tried to cope with her own sexuality. Like many young girls, she often found herself in disagreements with her mother. And like any teenager, she veered between the carefree nature of a child and the full-fledged sorrow of an adult. Anne emerges more human, more vulnerable and more vital than ever. Anne Frank and her family, fleeing the horrors of Nazi occupation, hid in the back of an Amsterdam warehouse for two years. She was thirteen when she went into the Secret Annex with her family.

Review:

"The new edition reveals a new depth to Anne's dreams, irritations, hardship, and passions. There may be no better way to commemorate the fiftieth anniversary of the end of World War II than to reread The Diary of a Young Girl, a testament to an indestructible nobility of spirit in the face of pure evil." Chicago Tribune

I read this book when i was a teenager and it was so sad and made me cry but it also opened my eyes to see how life was back then and that we never want to go back to that! I loved that it was a diary of her life made me want to read it to see what happened next in her life and i think more people and young adults need to read this so we never forget what they went through! GREAT book will never forget!!!

The diary of Anne Frank is highly interesting as a a first hand account of the world of an intelligent and vibrant teenage girl. The unique circumstances under which it was written add interesting as well as tragic twists to the story but in essence it remains one of the most authentic account of female adolescence.

This is a classic story about a young girl in the Holocaust. There is not much to say about this book, because you have to read it to understand. I loved this book because being interested in history this story taught me a lot about what people had to go through. A lot of people died in the Holocaust, and for a 13 year old girl you could only imagine what it was like. It also teaches about trust, like when her family is hiding in the attic and someone turns them in probably for money, or in order to keep their lives. Back in those times the Jewish were not considered a human, but a number. Everything they had was taken from them, and they died horribly. I recommend this book to all ages 10+ up. It teaches a lot about our history, and might help you understand what our world had to go through, at some time or another.
