This clear-eyed and often heart-wrenching book, first published in 1994 and now updated with a new preface from the author, has been compared to The Diary of Anne Frank, both in the freshness of its voice and the grimness of the world it describes. Zlata Filipovic began her diary just before her eleventh birthday, recording the typical concerns of a girl her age: piano lessons, birthday parties, and grades at school. But as war engulfs Sarajevo, the things she writes about change: the deaths of friends, food shortages, and days spent waiting out bombardments in a neighbor’s cellar. Yet throughout, Zlata herself remains observant and courageous, and it is these qualities that give Zlata’s Diary the power to remind readers of the ravages of war.
