The Diary of a Young Girl is about 13 year-old Anne Frank who lives during World War II and keeps a diary. The Diary of a Young Girl is for young adults and adults. Anne Frank was a young girl with many pleasures, friends, and admirers. Anne Frank was also Jewish. When Hitler occupied the Netherlands, Anne Frank and her family along with another family and a German dentist go into hiding in the Secret Annex. When you are hiding you are constantly afraid of being found. If you were found you were either taken to a concentration camp or shot. It was a very dismal prospect but Anne mostly remained optimistic. The Diary of a Young Girl is one of the most famous books in the world. It reduced me to tears. The Diary of a Young Girl is important book. Five Stars. Have a great day!!! -annaleeliz and Buttons
