challenging dark emotional hopeful informative inspiring reflective tense slow-paced


This was a highly educational and emotional book about the lives of 8 Jewish people in hiding during WW2. Though there were some parts that dragged on a bit, I cannot at all criticize them seeing as this is the diary of a teenage girl with no socialization outside of the 7 people she lived with. I understand what others say about Anne complaining a lot, but once again she was in a small place with 7 other people for two years, so she’s bound to complain. Overall this was sad and interesting.

emotional informative inspiring reflective medium-paced


I loved it! Such a unique look into someone's, but especially a young struggling girls (or women's like how she felt it) mind. things and time are so different, yet the emotions and experience are so the same. Things almost every girl growing up feel, but never says or even sometimes dares to think of, she wrote down and expressed so purely and real (not knowing others would read it). It gives room to think all the while reading on the state of self, families, groups, Country's and cultures, without being imposing or philosophical. I would recommend it to anyone, but especially to other girls/women who feel trapped or stuk what ever situation or place.
