Girl at War by Sara Nović

Girl at War: A Novel - Sara Nović

Not particularly well-written, and it seemed like it was meant for a younger audience.  Lots of telling, not showing, and it didn't feel very convincing or that there were any real emotions connected to what went on.  Too much jumping around, rather than building the story. Disappointing.
