Eleven-year-old Zlata, growing up in the beautiful city of Sarajevo, adores her school, her friends, pizza, rock music and holidays. Her lively interests are meticulously recorded in her diary. Then, in 1992, before her twelfth birthday, life becomes the long, dreary struggle of the Bosnian war. In portraying the young diarist, Moore perfectly captures each nuance of feeling: her exuberance, pity or rage. Grieving for her stolen childhood, Zlata becomes intensely present in this flawless reading. The Bosnian girl has much to say to the world, and Moore gives her convincing voice. We would do well to listen. S.B.S. Winner of AUDIOFILE Earphones Award ©AudioFile, Portland, Maine [Published: MAR 95]
