Anne Frank The diary of a young girl Anne was a 13 years Jewish girl that lived in Neatherlands in the time world war 2 was taking place; with a bad temper, it helped work with what she wanted. That’s why she didn’t get on well with her sister, her mother, and everybody else. The only different one was her dad, he understood what was happening to her, ( puberty), and helped her with everything she wanted. On her birthday she received a diary, Anne named it Kitty, and Kitty was her best friend ever since. From the first day she had it, she would write all the thoughts, feelings and wishes she had.
Her mother was a generous, lavish, exuberant woman full of laughter whereas her father was a discreet, quiet man. He was also a Jewish scholar, and knew Latin and German. When she was five and a half, her grandmother took her to “heder”, for Yiddish-Hebrew religios instruction. The rabbi told Ozick’s grandmother to take her home because a girl did not have to study. But her grandmother brought her back the very next day and insisted that she was to be accepted.
However, my mom loved Kevin and so that meant we had to love Kevin as well for my mom’s happiness, time went by and Kevin grew on my brothers and I, we loved him like a father. I was starting 8th grade that year, which was the same year it was my mom and Kevin’s one-year marriage anniversary. On that day, I was in a garage with people I thought were my friends. What happened in that garage changed my life. I was raped , I constantly said no, I was terrified at what would happen if I told my mom, what would go through her mind, what would happen to me, what would the other kids think if they found out.
Goodwin writes that every night before bedtime her mother would come and read to her. Goodwin’s favorite times with her mother though were when her mother would tell her real life stories about when she was younger. During this time Goodwin liked to believe that her mother forgot about the pain that she went through constantly due to her bad health. While Doris Goodwin’s mother and father were a very important part of her life growing up her sisters were just as important. She talks about how while Charlotte, her oldest sister was not around as much as her other older sister, Jeanne she was still very important to her.
Some of the experiences we endure stay with us. They never leave, and we remember them as if it were yesterday. Some actually have an impact on our lives, and then some are just…there. My mother had recently started making jokes on how she was bringing me to come live with her again. For instance, I would be Virginia with her visiting during the summer and she would say, “Tray, do you want to ride past your new school?” I mean, she knew how much I loved the man and woman I lived with…and how much it would hurt me if I had to leave.
Ever think you are in control only to find out that you are not and you are in way over your head? Well, that is the life that Kristina Georgia Snow has everyone follow in Glass.

Crank is about a innocent,17 year old girl named Kristina, who is on her way to graduating early when she has to go spend one month in the summer with her estranged father. While at her fathers house, she tries crank for the first time and falls in love with the monster.
I started thinking of all the lies that I’d heard her tell. I remember the time she told her friend that her favorite shopping mall had closed, just so she wouldn’t have to see her there anymore and have her approach her and talk for five minutes. The time she told my Uncle that she loved the new purse he had gotten her for her birthday. The one that really takes the cake is when she told her friend Patty that the car was down and that is why she hasn’t been to see her in a couple of weeks. The thing that I don’t understand is why you have to lie to the people you love if you don’t like or want to do something.
(Phelps & Warren 2012, 16-17). During the summer, she started her menstrual cycle and started wearing makeup; her family saw her as a different person. (Phelps & Warren 2012, 33). On her birthday, she was going to have a real birthday party but instead she went to a strangers house, gave the birthday money to him, and he brought back alcohol. After that incident she stayed at her friend Zizi’s house, but didn’t tell her mother where she was.
She is an inspiration to many people around the world to have gone through all that at such a young age. Through everything she went through she had kept a diary. Anne Frank had a crazy, but scary childhood, but a good family by her side every step of the way, she died at a young age, and kept a diary which was published into a book. Anne Frank was born June 12 1929 in the German town of Frankfurt am Main. She grew up with her parents Edith Frank and Otto Frank and her older sister Margot.
Her loving parents sadly divorced when she was only 6 years old, to imagine how hard that must have been for her is sad, but it is nothing compared to what lied ahead of her. Audrey attended school in England like a good student until the year became 1939, the beginning of World War 2. During this time her mother thought it would be safest to move to the Netherlands, thinking all would safe for young Audrey, however, the Nazis soon advanced and occupied Holland. It was through sheer work and determination that she managed to wake up every morning and still attend her classes and ballet, even knowing that her fate could soon be tempted by the Nazis to become a prostitute, (“Hepburn, Audrey”). Many men and women would feel defeated, or that all hope was simply out of reach, but not Audrey.
