Book Name: The Diary Of A Young Girl
Author: Anne Frank

This is a non-fiction book which was initially the diary of the thirteen-year-old Anne Frank. This book gives us insight into what it was like to be in hiding during war.

The reason I was intrigued by the book, when I first learnt of its existence, was its reality. Unlike other fictions I have read, it was not edited or tweaked as far as I could tell. Instead, the book consists of extracts from Anne Frank’s diary.

On July 6th of 1942, Anne Frank and her family went into hiding at the building ‘Prinsengracht 263’, which is now referred to as the ‘Secret Annexe’ as they didn’t want the Nazis to capture them.

The book was created by her father-Otto frank, who extracted and turned her entries into ‘The diary of a young girl’.

The book goes over the many struggles and achievements that are faced by Anne. I would give this book a rating of 9/10 and would recommend it to anyone who is going through a calamity.
