Girl at War
A NovelBook - 2015
Part war saga, part coming of age tale, part story of love and friendship, "Girl at War" is a powerful debut novel by a young writer who will appeal to readers of Anthony Marra, Tǎ Obreht, and Anthony Doerr. Zagreb, summer of 1991. Ten-year-old Ana Juric is a carefree tomboy who runs the streets of Croatia's capital with her best friend, Luka, takes care of her baby sister, Rahela, and idolizes her father. But as civil war breaks out across Yugoslavia, soccer games and school lessons are supplanted by sniper fire and air raid drills. When tragedy suddenly strikes, Ana is lost to a world of guerilla warfare and child soldiers; a daring escape plan to America becomes her only chance for survival.
