I had no idea that this book would be such an easy read. It is a book of poems from the author to Anne Frank, whom the author feels a connection with. She explains this connection in her introduction to the book. The book was originally written in Spanish and then translated. This copy contained the Spanish on one page and the English on the other so really it was only 60 pages of poetry and those were not full pages, one to two paragraphs was the average.
The world became fascinated with Anne F
A staggering, heartbreaking collection of poetry by a Jewish Chilean author who grew up with a picture of Anne Frank on her bedroom wall. I read this book in about 30 minutes and would do so again and again. Very vivid imagery and universal themes of love and death. I heartily recommend!
i might have cried at the end when it all hit me. i don't remember for sure but she had an honest innocent voice i believed in.

Powerful, stunning poems! I will use them with students when we study Anne Frank.
