I think this is a great book. It is historical fiction, but it shows a male side of the heavily female originals (Anne Frank, Rutka Laskier and such). I have read some complaints that Dogar did not treat the individuals of the Annex with respect, but in fact I would say she was kinder to them than Anne was herself. I would say this is strongly a PG-13 book, but I think it would be much easier for young males to identify with.
The second part of the book is disturbing, but powerful. Not for the faint of heart, but I would suggest anyone who is interested in looking into the darkness that was the holocaust read this book.
