by Anne Frank (abridged for young readers by Mirjam Pressler) (Puffin Books) This book is about a Jewish girl called Anne Frank and her experiences during the Holocaust. She lived hidden inside an attic, in Amsterdam. If caught by the German Nazis, she and her family would be sent to the prison camp. The Germans thought their race was more superior than Anne Frank’s. Her diary became her only friend.

I loved this book because you never knew what would come next. Anne was in a life-threatening situation and it was very interesting. I couldn’t imagine what it would be like living through the Holocaust and WWII.

This historical autobiography is a story about courage and hope. I recommend it to people who connect with historical stories and don’t become too sad at emotional sections.

Suitable for readers aged 9+.
