What would it really be like to live through the bombing of Baghdad? This poignant diary is a first-hand account of a family in a city living under attack. Written by 19-year-old Thura al-Windawi, it describes the chaos and destruction around her. Her younger sister Sama, who is seven, "keeps drawing guns...before she drew ladies in dresses". She describes a handsome American soldier: "he's got beautiful sunglasses...but I think he's probably a monster". Thura must also face the death of her childhood friend, Freday, killed during the bombing: "I feel shocked, like part of me is dying, too".
