    DESCRIPTION Zeina Abirached
    Zeina Abirached, author of the award-winning graphic novel A Game for Swallows, returns with a powerful collection of wartime memories.

    Abirached was born in Lebanon in 1981. She grew up in Beirut as fighting between Christians and Muslims divided the city streets. Follow her past cars riddled with bullet holes, into taxi cabs that travel where buses refuse to go, and on outings to collect shrapnel from the sidewalk.

    With striking black-and-white artwork, Abirached recalls the details of ordinary life inside a war zone.

    "This spare memoir humanizes families trapped in war zones, and their experiences should resonate with young adult audiences. Highly Recommended."―starred, Library Media Connection
    Other Reviews
    The Horn Book Magazine
    "[T]he author revisits that era in a loosely connected series of sobering vignettes and impressions, each beginning with the phrase 'I remember'.... In one particularly striking spread, Abirached envisions the family's many relocations as the squares of a board game." —The Horn Book Magazine
    Booklist
    "Abirached's childlike memories altogether compose a deeply personal portrait of Beirut unlike any historical account, and for readers curious about conflict in the region, it will provide a useful, humanizing entry point." —Booklist
