    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. The setting and time that the story takes place in is Sarajevo during the Bosnian War. 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.

    An inspiring memoir of war, love, hope, and peace

    Zlata's Diary is a touching memoir, by Zlata Filipovic, about her, a young girl whose beloved homeland goes up in flames when a war breaks out. Zlata's Diary is about an 11 year old girl who struggles through her young life, living in the middle of war in Sarajevo. She talks about how the horrible war took her childhood away; she says that it visibly ages her parents. The communication between her friends and family is gone, for there is no power, and the post office has been burned to the ground. There is nothing her and her parents can do but sit and wait. Once she cries out "BOREDOM!!! SHOOTING!!! SHELLING!!! PEOPLE BEING KILLED!!! DESPAIR!!! HUNGER!!! MISERY!!! FEAR!!!" (PG 65.) She talks about how the war has killed her loved ones, and even innocent children she has barely met. Just imagine a world filled without power, water, and little food, a world with shooting and bombing, killing and constant fear.
    This is one of my favorite books, because it can show people how hard life is for some people and how some take it for granted. I would recommend this book for older kids and teens, because it's all about war and how it is ruining the life of the people who are forced to live in the middle of it. It may be about war, but if you think about it, it's more about love, hope, and fear. Would you be able to live through such horror? Imagine being forced to.

    An eleven year old surivives with her family during bosnian war

    I would reccomed this book Zlata's Diary to others to read. Is really interesting how Zlata was a really strong girl during the war. She lost a lot of her close friend some of them died or they moved out of Saravejo. There were nights when they did not have electricity, water, and gas.Sometimes she would not go to school. because of the shelling of the war.She survived in though she went through a lot problems for her and her family.

    The Harsh Life Of Zlata's

    I totally recomend this book to any eighth graders out there, expecially when you have a book report due! You could get the book as little as a week away from the day you have to turn the report in. And the questions that you have to anwser, well, you get over 50% of the anwsers just from the introduction section.
