Worthy seems the best adjective to describe this real diary of a young girl trapped in the war-torn madness of Sarajevo. With Zlata's writing we are led through all the emotions of conflict, made more poignant because this is a child's voice and she's so confused about what 'politics' is inflicting on her, her friends and her family. It should be stocked for what it is and, what it reveals about the last decade of the twentieth century. Great literature it ain't; but then, that wasn't the point of its inception and publication.
