Eleven-year-old Zana loves life in her small village in Kosovo. She also loves her best friend, Lena, even though her uncle doesn't want the two of them playing together, since Lena is a Serb and Zana and her family are Albanians. Soon, soldiers are pulling Albanians off of buses and looting and bombing Albanian homes. Amidst a rising tide of violence, Zana must find a way to break the cycle of hate. Closely based on Alice Mead's own experiences, Girl of Kosovo is a stark look at the evil people can do-and at the enduring power of love. Narrator Julie Dretzin voices all the determination of a girl who listeners will never forget.
