Symbolism, Imagery, Allegory

At many points in her diary, Anne expresses her desire to grow up so that her family will take her seriously. She hopes desperately to have her period, thinking of it as a physical sign of adulthood. While her period doesn’t bring her family to respect her maturity, she continues to enjoy it as a "sweet secret."
