This book is the main reason why I enjoyed my German class back in 2003 - we were discussing Hitler's involvement during WW2 and we were told to read Anne Frank's Diary for a insight to the lives of people at the time.
Wow. It is not only a way of learning about the hardships Jewish people went through during those times, but also learning that teenage girls will always be the same. No matter what decade they were from - As shown in this book. We all still think about boys, clothes, worry about the way we look and get annoyed about everything!
Definately something that all young girls should read.
