Reviews for The Diary of a Young Girl
I think the aspect of Anne being a young girl and her maturing is clouded by the drama of the war and the fear they live in. But if you really pay attention there is an amazing piece of work here that is very heartwarming and insightful that does not only touch on the horrors of war and the affect that it has on a small group of people but it shows a young girl going through the hormonal changes and having to grow up fast. I think it is a good book to give to maturing girls to let them see they are normal and life is hard and at the same time introduce them to Anne's courage faced in a time that is much harder then most of us will ever experience. But most of all it shows a young girl in dire circumstances still able to remain positive. I think most of us could really take a page from Anne's diary. by Shauna Stottunder review

This is the diary of the most courageous fourteen-year-old girl to ever live.
Anne Frank lived during the time of World War II, when you could be killed or put in a concentration camp for being Jewish -- or for not being blue-eyed and blonde. Hitler was ignorant in thinking that those with blue eyes and blonde hair were of the superior race, and anyone else should be killed.
Anne and her family went into hiding in 1942 and managed to hide for over two years.
Was Hitler finally overruled or was the family found by the Gestapo (the police that worked for Hitler)? Read this novel about a normal teenager in hiding to find out.
This is a really good book to read if you want to learn more about World War II, or simply about being courageous and living a life in hiding. Also, not only is this novel about the war but also about how Anne grows up and discovers life and writing. by TeensReadToounder review
