I read this book largely because I wanted more insight. Yet I found myselfmoved to tears. it is a cleverly constructed, beautiful colection which certainly fulfills its pupuse of celebrating Anne's life way before the war or any other horror touched her.
It is hard to reflect on Anne Frank without contemplating the impact of the Nazis and yet this book manages to touch on her life pre-war and during her hiding that she becomes a person who exists seperately - as she deserves.
It moved me to tears as did the diary yet also filled me with hope .
