Rather vague don't you think?" and "Just had a big bust up with mummy for the umpteenth time, we simply don't get on together these days!" Anne growingly falls more and more in love with Peter as she gets to know him; "Sometimes I have had the same feeling here with Peter, but never to such an extent, until yesterday, when we were, as usual, sitting on the divan, our arms wrapped around each other's waists.

Her character has strengthened greatly. Anne Frank has written this diary very maturely and as it is her diary it is written very personally and informally in the first person. Her writing is very effective, after some reading there is a needed feeling of empathizing with her character. The book has the affect of creating a minor bond with the reader.
