Description
Information
'All the children are asleep . . . my aunt is watching them so if they wake up they will not be afraid. Mum is worried about Dad. The bombs are starting again. They're getting closer.'

Before the war, Thura Al-Windawi was an average Iraqi teenager. Then the bombs started falling on Baghdad and her family's life was thrown into turmoil. Her only way of controlling the chaos around her was to keep a diary.

It's a compelling insight into the effects of war not just on one family, but on an entire generation of Iraqi youth . . .
