The haunting account of the young Anne Frank and her tragically short life as a hidden Jewish fugitive during the Holocaust continues to deeply move and inspire readers, decades after she wrote what became The Diary of a Young Girl. This title, geared toward an upper-elementary-level readership, follows her early life before the outbreak of World War II, with an emphasis on her writings and experiences in hiding. Anne Frank’s attempt to live and document a normal life in the face of great danger and adversity makes this an especially compelling title for young readers.
