Summary :

Fourteen-year old Adem, an Albanian boy, lives in Serb-occupied Kosovo. Adem hates existing in a constant state of terror. Every week, friends and family are beaten, teargassed, and killed. The Albanians are helpless, and even passive resistance can get you killed--as is Adem's sister Fatmira, gunned down while reading a protest poem. Now Adem must decide how to survive this never-ending nightmare--with or without his family.

  • "The story is bleak, occasionally grisly, and absolutely eye-opening as Mead details life in a village where they drink Coke, watch MTV, and try to avoid death long enough for their situation to improve." Booklist
