{my thoughts} - This book in my honest opinion is not a clear comparison to that of The Diary of Anne Frank. I enjoyed reading this book back when I was a child. I remember it was the first book I had ever gotten through a scholastic thingy from school. When I got the book I was so excited I read it cover to cover twice. I was in awe at the way it was written. An elven-year old girl wrote her diary in letter form. She had named her diary Mimmy. She write's to Mimmy about everything that is going on her life. A majority of the writing takes place by candle light and it helps her to work through her problems. I can't imagine being a child forced to live life during a war and seeing the devastating effects that it can have on them.… (mais)

Reading an 11-year-old’s diary when she’s a happy child and then suffering the fates of the Bosnian War is tragic and sad. Pages of the diary were published during the war in 1991-93 when she lived in Sarajevo, and she knew she was being compared to Anne Frank. Her writing is exemplary for her age but she never understood why there was a war and why peace wasn’t coming. She was both hopeful and sometimes suicidal as friends were killed and families, friends, and neighbors were displaced. From the introduction we learn her family eventually escapes to Paris and from Wikipedia we learn she went to Oxford and now champions the cause of children suffering through war. Of course an inspiration. Reading about war from a child’s perspective is eye-opening to say the least. I am glad she left us this legacy.… (mais)
