Reviews

Set against the backdrop of the Bosnian Croat war, this vivid debut recalls Half of a Yellow Sun. Main character Ana's journey from a ten-year-old tomboy to young woman will leave you reeling. - StylistAn unforgettable portrait of how war forever changes the life of the individual, Girl at War is a remarkable debut by a writer working with deep reserves of talent, heart, and mind. - Gary ShteyngartGirl at War by Sara Novic depicts the still-fresh nightmare of the Serbo-Croatian war, survived by a girl much too young to know all she knows. Sara Novic writes with ruthless understatement not only about a modern city subjected to primitive horrors, but about young Ana's subsequent war against the American urge to forget. Sentence after perfectly-weighted sentence, her prose lands with the sound of a gavel. The first fifty pages might be the best fifty pages you read this year. - Jonathan DeeGirl at War performs the miracle of making the stories of broken lives in a distant country feel as large and universal as myth. It is a brutal novel, but a beautiful one - New York Times
