Teen Book Review - The Diary of a Young Girl by Anne Frank.

Book Review by Maya B.    I thought The Diary of a Young Girl was an excellent read. I would rate the book 5 stars. I started the book when I was younger and I didn’t like it as much. Now that I’m older, I thoroughly enjoyed the book. The people were very enjoyable and I always like when Mrs. van Daan had to complain about something. Her defenses and complaints may have been annoying to the people living in the Annex, but to me they were very funny.
