Summary
  • A story set in Russia, about the aftermath of a terrorist attack in which the 18-year-old narrator, Darya, loses her young sister Nika. Darya escapes to Moscow where she eventually realizes that running away is no cure for grief
  • Darya has been taking care of her family for years. On the day she brings her little sister, Nika, to school for the first time, their rural Russian town is attacked by terrorists. Darya manages to escape, but Nika is one of hundreds of children taken hostage in the school in what stretches to a three-day siege and ends in violence. Darya and her family frantically scour hospitals and survivor lists in hopes that Nika has somehow survived, as journalists and foreign aid workers descend on the small town. Caught in the grip of grief and trauma, Daria tries to recover her life and wonders if there is any hope for her future. -- adapted from jacket
