In this fictionalized journal, Anastasia lives again. Through her eyes, we witness the day-to-day splendor the czar's family experienced before the onslaught of the Russian Revolution. However, one also senses that crowding the outskirts of Anastasia's ornate diary are hundreds of thousands of teeming serfs, just beginning to percolate.

"This fictive diary...will fascinate children." (Kirus Reviews)
This had a very interesting storyline. It provided informatin about the historical abckground I knew nothing about. It made me want to learn more about this historical family. If you like fictional stories based on a historical outlook this is a must read book. I know I loved it.
Anastasia retells what she writes in her diary as she writes it. She shows her perspective of the history as she perceives it. Since she knows very little of what is happening outside her house and family life, it has little to nothing to tell about her times.
I guess it tries to imitate the idea of the diary of Anne Frank. But it's boring as hell.
