When Zlata's Diary was first published at the height of the Bosnian conflict, it became an international best-seller and was compared to The Diary of Anne Frank, both for the freshness of its voice and the grimness of the world it describes. It begins as the day-to-day record of the life of a typical 11-year-old girl, preoccupied by piano lessons and birthday parties. But as war engulfs Sarajevo, Zlata Filipovic becomes a witness to food shortages and the deaths of friends and learns to wait out bombardments in a neighbor's cellar. Yet throughout, she remains courageous and observant. The result is an audiobook that has the power to move and instruct listeners a world away.More
"The narrative provides a vivid description of the ravages of war and its effect upon one young woman, and, as such, is valuable for today's YAs." (School Library Journal)
