What I liked best: Zlata said that 1993 will bring them peace, happiness, love, reunited families and friends. She told her friends to think of things that is happy, forgot the war.
What I didn’t like: Zlata use to much slaughter, massacre, horror, crime, blood, screams, killed, tears and despair.
Comment: It’s a very interesting book, it makes you want to read on and on.
Interesting Boring Illustrations box Too few Just right Too many
