    This is the perfect story for anyone who loves a tragic story. T

    This is the perfect story for anyone who loves a tragic story. This story is also an accurate PG-13 record of what happened during the Bosnian War and has no explicit language anywhere in the book. The setting and time that the story takes place in is Sarajevo during the Bosnian War, which occurred between the spring of 1992 and the winter of 1995.. The story starts as a sweet and happy story, but turns into a tragic, bitter, and sad story. In the midst of the chaotic tragedy are death, starvation, destruction, vital supply shortages, corrupt politicians, and more.

    A reviewer

    This book starts with Zlata talking, in diary entrys, about the war nearby her home. It later goes on to talk about the bombing and shellings in Sarajevo, her home. The author, Zlata Filipovic, does a good job to convey the reader to keep reading, even though when she wrote it that wasnt her purpose. She talks about tramatic events during the war and hard times which makes you want to keep reading to see the outcome. Something that I like about this book is that the book is in diary entrys. I like this because she talks about the most exciting times, and its not boring. But something that confused me in this book was the location of the war in the beginning of the book. I recall her mentioning the war nearby, but i dont think the location. I also dont really understand or know why the troops came over to her home country, or how the war spread. Someone who might enjoy this book or find it interesting would be someone who doesnt really know what war is like or the situations some people are in. It taught me very much about the hardships people have to live with and what war really is like.

    Zalta's Story Touches the Heart

    This book has the power to touch the hearts of anyone who reads it. It is the diary of little Zalta- a girl trapped in the midst of Yugoslavia's war. The book is very similar to the Diary of Ann Frank. It shows how one girl's happy life is changed forever. It is absolutely touching!
