Zlata’s Diary by Zlata Filipovic
You might think that Zlata’s Diary is an odd choice for book club. After all, what’s so special about a young girl’s diary? Haven’t we learned by now that young girls’ diaries contain powerful observations? Hello, Anne Frank much?
To be sure, Zlata is a young girl who has much to say about her environment. And Zlata’s environment is war torn Sarajevo in the 90s. If you weren’t around to remember the conflict in Bosnia, it resembled many of the scenes straight out of WWII: food shortages, military occupations, bombings, snipers, etc. Can you even imagine being 11 and enduring war?
Neither can I. And that’s why Zlata is in the Bad Girls Club. Despite all the multiple horrific odds against her, she and her family survived the war. She now lives in Ireland, has attained all sorts of degrees, and helps kids.
Well gang, that’s the last member of the Bad Girls Fight Club, A to Z.
What did you think? Anyone I should have added?
Thanks to visiting and I’ll see you around the internet!
