When Zlata’s Diary was first published at the height of the Bosnian conflict, it became an international bestseller and was compared to The Diary of Anne Frank, both for the freshness of its voice and the grimness of the world it describes. It begins as the day-to-day record of the life of a typical eleven-year-old girl, preoccupied by piano lessons and birthday parties. But as war engulfs Sarajevo, Zlata Filipovic becomes a witness to food shortages and the deaths of friends and learns to wait out bombardments in a neighbor’s cellar. Yet throughout she remains courageous and observant. The result is a story that has the power to move and instruct readers a world away.

    " I loved this book when I was a kid. Zlata is compared to Anne Frank a lot, but personally I don't think they were/are anything alike except that they both lived through a war. As a kid I found Zlata's voice very real and genuine and my heart went out to her. I think this is a good book for younguns to have. "

    " While most of us weren't around when WWII occured, we can certainly remember the war in Sarajevo and it is for this reason I feel that Zlata's Diary has such a powerful impact with people today. "

    " This is definitely a child's view of war, and interesting as such, but there is so little context that I wondered what 10th grade students would get out of it (we are considering it for next year's curriculum). "
