Detailed Answer : 

Anne was a very shy and introvert girl. She had friends but none with whom she could share her secrets. She never confided in any of them. On her thirteenth birthday, she was presented a red and white checkered diary by her parents. The diary played an important role throughout her life. The first sight of the diary had made Anne grow a liking to it and she started making entry of her deep thoughts and feelings into it. She gave it a name “Kitty” and in all her entries, she had referred to it as “Dear Kitty”. There was no aspect of her life which she had not mentioned in the diary. Whenever she found time, she “spent” it with the diary. She confided about the teenage- desires, her friends, her fears, her loneliness – in fact everything in the diary. She always felt a need of true friend, which she could confide everything. She found that true friend in her Kitty.
