Fran's War by Sally Trench
When Sally Trench saw the six o clock news with its pictures of children in Bosnia, hungry, orphaned and helpless, she knew she could not sit and do nothing. In her true, indefatigable style she was on a plane to Bosnia within two weeks. Her task was to get children out of the war-torn country and adopted by British and American families, and, failing that, to get food, medicine and other supplies into the worst affected areas.In the aftermath of the war, left with a legacy of shock and extreme vulnerability, Sally felt that he only way she could convey her story was in fictional form, through the eyes of a child. This is Sally s dramatic and painful account, but Fran tells it for her and the result is a very powerful blend of fact and storytelling.
