An insight into the lives of those who lived in Baghdad during the US occupation. Although harrowing and heartbreaking, this story could not be put down. The determination and will of the main character Lina was inspiring and real. The ending isn’t tidy and predictable – it’s made up of life saving choices that have to be made by a teenage girl in terrible circumstances – not a self serving love story.
