What Members Thought

Finally read this though I expected that I would not like it.

The story is important and it should be read but I rightly felt that it would not be an enjoyable read. There are some dull bits, but what would one expect of a teen girl confined for two years in a secret annex? Her innocent romance with Peter does add some interest as does her retelling of events that I'm familiar with from history but overall, this does not make for a "fun read."

Her writing style is better than I expected and it's...more
Much more appreciated after touring her annex.
