The Diary of Anne Frank

The Diary of Anne Frank


by Anne Frank

The Diary of Anne Frank Saturday, October 3, 1942 Summary

  • Another argument erupts between Anne and her mother (who knows what about) but her mom then starts harping on all of Anne’s faults. This makes both Anne and her mother cry, but for different reasons.
  • Anne tells her father she loves him more than her mother. He thinks it’s just a passing phase. Mr. Frank also wishes Anne would help her mother more, but Anne refuses.
  • Anne gets to read slightly more grown-up books, but they sound pretty ridiculous. In a book Anne is reading, one of the characters gets her period, and Anne envies that. She wants to be grown up.
