Day to day life in wartime Iraq is brought to us in startling clarity through Thura's honest observations and feelings. Thura helps us understand how her life has been influenced, first by Saddam Hussein and then by war. While having to overcome stark conditions, Thura conveys a sense of hope and spirit as she pursues her dreams of an education and opportunity to lead a "normal life."
