I love to read diaries because I think that they are the best way to understand the times in which they were written. This diary is no exception. Like Anne Frank,13 year old Nina Lugovskaya get is worried about the dangers and political tension surrounding her family- especially her father. But she also worries about ordinary teenage concerns: boys, parties, how she looks and what she will be when she grows up. For anyone interested in the day to day life in Soviet Russia under Stalin.
