About this title


It is early in 1999 when Drita, an Albanian, and Zoran, a Serb, become friends. They are like any other teenagers—but this is Kosovo, where Serb-Albanian tensions are rising. Learning that their families have become enemies, Drita and Zoran are forced to meet in secret. The violence that strikes their community is powerful enough to destroy even the strongest of friendships, and Drita and Zoran are about to begin a fight for their lives. Will their friendship survive the terrible struggle? Survivors is a brand-new and dramatic collection of short novels for young readers, each book about a young person caught up in a real-life conflict or disaster that boys and girls will recognize from their history books. The stories are fiction, but through each young hero's eyes, the boys and girls who read these tales will gain a deeper understanding of the day-to-day hardships and dangers encountered by people living and surviving through troubled times. Each book has a brief introduction relating actual historical events, and at the end of each book, young readers will find a brief historical note that places the story in a larger context plus a glossary of terms specific to the time and place. Boys and girls will also find a list of suggested further reading. Line illustrations capture the atmosphere of each story. Titles in this series are available in both paperback and hardcover editions. This is a paperback book. (Ages 10-13)
