From School Library Journal
Grade 3-4–Details of Anne Frank's life are augmented with fictionalized dialogue and descriptions written in novel format. Is this biography or historical fiction based on real events? It's impossible to tell. While easier to read than the original diary, the fabrication is bothersome, particularly for a historical figure so renowned for her own words. For a better, easier-to-read account of Anne Frank's life and tragic demise, Johanna Hurwitz's Anne Frank: Life in Hiding (Jewish Pubn. Society, 1988) or Rachel A. Koestler-Grack's The Story of Anne Frank (Chelsea House, 2003) are better choices.–Rita Soltan, Oakland University, Rochester, MI
