Summary: this book is about the life of Anne Frank. Anne is a young Jewish girl living in Holland, during the second world war. Her story tells about this time in the Franks family life from the writing of Anne's diary. The Frank family went from being wealthy, to ending up hiding from the German Nazis, who were taking Jews and killing them in concentration camps. Anne and her family found a place to hide which they called the " hiding place." Anne used her diary to record everything that would happen to her family and friends during that time.
Personal reaction: I really like this book because it tells me close up what Anne and her family went through. What they and other Jews went through really is heart breaking and amazing at the same time. I would also add that this book brings out different levels of emotions.
Extension: I would use this book in the classroom, probably to students a little older. Using the book to look at the suffering of the Jewish people, as well as the Importance of recording Important life events, that can some day change history.
