The Diary of Anne Frank~


I have just finished The Diary of Anne Frank! 
If you don't know anything about her here is a mini bio'.

Anne Frank's diary was very moving.  As I keep a diary, I know how she felt about "Kitty" (she named her diary).  She was a total girl.  She liked to have friends to share secrets with, she dreamed of true love, she loved movie stars, and dressing up. 

Most people don't know she died of Typhus or Typhoid fever.  Two months before her 16th birthday...  

I hope you read this very moving document.  Anne wrote in her diary,"I hope to go on living even after my death."  And her wish has come true.
