I first read this book in Junior High School. I loved it then and really connected with the writer, Anne Frank, who was about my age at the time. I think that is why your students at this age can really take a lot out of reading this book as well. As I've just finished it a second time as an adult I took so much more from this young girl.

The book contains journal entries, written by Anne Frank, a 13-year-old Jewish girl who was in hiding with her family and others during the Nazi occupation. The Franks and the Van Daans, are two families living in a small attic of an old office building. There are 8 people in total and the journal entries talk about how they are cut off from the outside world, crammed into a small tight space, hungry, bored, and the constant fear of being discovered by the Gestapo and taken to a concentration camp. There were times when the entries were geared toward a typical teenager describing the ups and downs of life in the situation and other times when she was more of a journalist reporting on their life in hiding.

I think this would be a great book to get kids talking about World War II and what was happening during this time. They would feel a connection to this young girl who is their age and what she is going through. ( )

Overall, this is a very moving book. This book would probably better be geared toward middle schoolers, because of the nature of the holocaust. It is a great way to give your students a first person perspective of world war 2. Either a history or english class could use this book. ( )
