Review:
After her parents were killed in Sarajevo during the war in Yugoslavia, fourteen-year-old Nina is in hiding in the family's vacation mountain house with her grandfather. A former partisan against the Nazis, he gives her survival advice - including fleeing to the address in England on some old letters to her mother. This is the harrowing story of a young refugee, pretending to be older, who survives despite her seeming "luck."
