She has taught herself English from The Catcher in the Rye and has taken up residence with a gang of teenage war orphans in the abandoned Hotel Sarajevo. As the novel develops, this child becomes a young woman, capable of both friendship and love.

This coming-of-age story, told in the first person, gives a distressingly accurate picture of the surreal, day-to-day life in a war-torn city. Almas sexual awakening stands in poignant juxtaposition to wars random cruelty, pinned down by the haunting image of a shrine to two slain lovers, one Muslin and one Serb. On her walks through the destruction in the streets, Alma becomes our guide to the besieged city and the accompanying psychological trauma.

Entrapped by a siege, forced to witness the slaughter of her companions, Alma is ultimately transformed into a young woman able to come to terms with the brutal horrors of war and--by association--her own mortality.
