"In the same way the diaries of Anne Frank and Zlata Filipovic have illustrated the day to day lives of tweens during the Holocaust and Bosnia, the Bat-Chen diaries paint a picture of life growing up in modern day Israel. Bat-Chen began to keep a diary when she was in the fifth grade, and she wrote frequent letters and poems. Collections of her writing have been published in Arabic, Japanese, Italian, Dutch and German. Her familiar concerns, friends, school, siblings, first romances are set against a backdrop of war and an enduring hope for peace.

This collection of journal entries, letters, and poems is all the more touching for the places in which it is sometimes overly dramatic or simplistic. It looks like the diaries we all wrote when we were tweens, and that is what makes it so powerful.
First person accounts make history and current events real to readers. Tweens will identifiy with Bat-Chen, who fights with her siblings and hates homework even while she's contemplating living in a country at war. Bat-Chen will make Middle East politics real for tweens.

"es ist die herzzerreißende Geschichte eines jungen Mädchens, das viel zu früh aus dem Leben gerissen wurde. Leider hat mich die Aufbereitung ihrer Gedichte und Tagebuchaufzeichnungen im persönlichen und politischen Zusammenhang nicht so sehr berührt, wie ich es erwartet hätte. Ich kann mir vorstellen, dass es teilweise an der Schwierigkeit liegt, Poesie überzeugend in eine andere Sprache zu übertragen, aber ich fand auch den Aufbau insgesamt eher schwach. Gerne würde ich das Tagebuch im hebräischen Original lesen und kann mir die Texte gut für den Unterricht an israelischen Schulen vorstellen." said.
