    Amazing

    Through Simon's amazing writing, this book puts you staring down the barrel of a gun just like the 14 year old female sniper during the war in Bosnia. You won't want to set it down.

    Great Summer Read for Young Adults

    I have to admit that the '92-'96 Balkan war was something I did not pay much attention to. Recent release of video showing Serbian atrocities and a book promo with the author on NPR (radio) drew me to this novel. This book is invaluable for its depiction of life in the city of Sarajevo (Bosnia) during the seige. I am struck at how very much this book seems to be geared toward young adult readers, but is not advertised as such. Essentiallly, the book is about a group of young adults who comprise a cell of Bosnian security (resistance) forces. The main character, Irena, goes from high school basketball standout to girl sniper.

    Top Notch Storytelling

    Scott Simon's 'Pretty Birds' is everything you want in a good novel. It is one of the best books I've read in 10 years. His storytelling ability brings you straight into Sarajevo and the characters are so believable. This is a book that you never want to end.
