So here’s a book I’d never heard anyone talk about before, but when Walker Books offer to send one my way – while it took me a while to decide – I gave it a chance.
I wasn’t sure how it would go, since I’m only just getting into nonfiction and this is over 400 pages, which will have been double the size of my longest nonfiction read so far. But I love learning about history, and so here we are today.
Let’s dive into Symphony for the city of the dead!

This book goes against everything I’ve known as a reader.
A bit dramatic, yes. But let me explain.
Every single time I’ve tried reading non-fiction, I’ve never been able to finish the book. I just couldn’t get into non-fiction. I mean, it’s even in the blog name. A frolic through fiction. No mention of non-fiction here, no thank you.
Because I discovered the diary of Anne Frank, and finally…finally I found a non-fiction book I actually enjoyed.
So let’s talk about The Diary of a Young Girl!
