Description

The diary as Anne Frank wrote it. At last, in a  new translation, this definitive edition contains  entries about Anne's burgeoning sexuality and  confrontations with her mother that were cut from  previous editions. Anne Frank's The Diary of a  Young Girl is among the most enduring  documents of the twentieth century. Since its  publication in 1947, it has been a beloved and deeply  admired monument to the indestructible nature of the  human spirit, read by millions of people and  translated into more than fifty-five languages.  Doubleday, which published the first English translation  of the diary in 1952, now offers a new translation  that captures Anne's youthful spirit and restores  the original material omitted by Anne's father,  Otto -- approximately thirty percent of the diary.  The elder Frank excised details about Anne's  emerging sexuality, and about the often-stormy relations  between Anne and her mother. Anne Frank and her  family, fleeing the horrors of Nazi occupation  forces, hid in the back of an Amsterdam office building  for two years. This is Anne's record of that time.  She was thirteen when the family went into the  "Secret Annex," and in these pages, she grows  to be a young woman and proves to be an insightful  observer of human nature as well. A timeless story  discovered by each new generation, The  Diary of a Young Girl stands without peer.  For young readers and adults, it continues to  bring to life this young woman, who for a time  survived the worst horrors the modern world had seen -- and  who remained triumphantly and heartbreakingly  human throughout her ordeal.

    I love this book. It shows the daring journey of a 13 year old girl who is Jewish during WWll. I actually went to the local bookstore and bought it. I have read the German version as well. She was a truly amazing person who was lucky enough for her father to find her diary and publish it. A MUST READ for 10 and up. P.S- I am ten and still love this book. Amazing book!❤️💛💚💙💜

    I had to read this book as an assignment for my English class and my mother would not let me get the hard copy. I was very surprised that iBooks had it because no other website had it. I would give tis 5 stars but it changed some phrases which made it extremely hard for me and my group to talk about the book and answer the comprehension questions. Other wise I loved the book very good quality. Also I love how you are able to highlight words and phrases. I also loved how you could mark multiple pages at once it is especially helpful if you are like me and have to read up to a certain part every week.Amazing , awesome,very well put together!!
