Anne Frank had just turned 13 years old when her family went into hiding to escape the Nazi invaders of the Netherlands. For more than two years, the Franks lived in a secret suite of rooms in the building where Anne’s father worked. It was during this time that the young Anne began keeping a journal that detailed the difficulties of life in hiding, her relationship with her parents and her sister, the daily fear of being discovered, and her earliest experiences with romance. This novelized biography of Frank’s life exposes young readers to her courage and confidence, while allowing the themes of courage and friendship to shine through.
