    One thought on “Paper Planes”

    1. Umpires wear white uniforms and blow whistles to declare penalty shots. They also keep score. It's hard for them to stop the players from arguing. Everyone wants their side to win.I'm not crying, you're crying.Paper Planes tells the story of 12-year old Niko. He lives a normal life with his parents and two siblings in Bosnia, until he is awoken early one morning to a phonecall. His brother's friend is calling to warn them. The war is coming.What follows is quite an educational middle grade novel [...]

    2. This book is perfect for 10-12 year olds and is pretty educational about the Bosnia war in the 90s.I've read a LOT of Historical Fiction books aimed at this age category (I kind of grew up on them), so I wasn't opposed to reading a book that was seriously too young for me. It was written very clearly and easily. With a heck of a lot of explanations. If they even mention a word that's remotely different (like "sniper") they'll stop and explain it. My real problem was the narrator: Niko. The kid w [...]

    3. Niko and his brother and his sister escape into Australia, and their parents stay back in the war. Good Book I loved it!

    4. I read this to my 12-year old son and we both absolutely loved it. A real eye-opener for kids on what families in war zones are going through, and because it is written from the perspective of a child it was very relatable. We were both so sad when we finished it as we wanted more! And a bit more closure would have been good too. Would love a sequel.

    5. A pre-teen read that is a story about a boy and his family during the Bosnian War. It was an easy read with good explanations of war terminology for young readers. My eleven year old really loved this. I found it to be quite simplistic with a very rushed ending.

    6. 3½ Stars.Really enjoyed it. An incredible look at the devastation war brings upon families and cultural genocide.Review to come.

    7. This book is so incredibly well written. The story grabs you from the beginning and doesn't let you go. Do yourself a favour and read this book!

A review by Nalini HaynesTrigger warnings: violence, attempted suicide, starvation, deathsNiko lives in Sarajevo with his family when the former Yugoslavia is torn apart by civil war. Niko and his best friend Nedim are from different people groups and different religions and yet they remain friends throughout this terrible [...]

    9. I have never travelled to Sarajevo, Bosnia, but novelist Allayne L. Webster made me feel as though I was there in 1992, alongside Niko and his family, trying to survive the war that ravaged the country. The story outlines the hardships endured by the Dobesh family and their determination to survive. The story begins with the family receiving a phone call warning them about the impending war. Niko rushes onto their apartment’s balcony and all is quiet…too quiet. The bustling city is deserted, [...]

Please head there for more in-depth reviews by me, which appear on a timely scheduleko is a normal young boy with a loving family and home. But suddenly, he finds himself in the middle of a war zone, and he must make his way through it to safety with or without his family.I wasn’t expecting anything when I picked up ‘Paper Planes’. To my surprise, it was the narrative of a young boy, threatened by war in Bosnia. Again, I’ [...]

    11. True events from the Bosnian-Serbian war form the basis for this gentle novel. We see everything through the eyes of 11-year-old Niko, Domenik Dobesh. The normal town life that he and his parents and 2 older siblings (Jarko and Danijela) shared, is now obliterated by Serbian shelling into Sarajevo, resulting in the terrible siege of 1992-1996. Starvation, snipers, cannon, bombs, air attacks and murderers were all unleased onto unsuspecting families like Niko's - families who had lived in peace a [...]

    12. This did not pull me as much as the title and cover promised it might however it is nonetheless a fascinating account of the conflict that divided a nation and its people for nearly half a decade. Ashamedly, I was aware of very little of the Civil War which savaged the former Yugoslavia in the early 90s in spite of the fact that I was living and working in Europe at the time. Paper Planes traces the plight of one family in Sarajevo through the eyes of the quite naive 12 year-old Niko and his eve [...]

    13. Probably one of the most depressing books I have read in a long time The world is seen in the eyes of an innocent 12 year old boy named Niko who is trapped in the Bosnian war with his family Niko is unable to comprehend the severity of the situation or how his life has been turned upside down because of this war I recommend this to younger readers who grew up in Australia - so they can understand how blessed we are to have grown up away from all of that

    14. Another good book about children living in a war zone for Middle School. Webster is a very good writer and gives a human face to a war that I know little of. A map would have helped me understand, but the story showed what it would be like to live in a city under siege and I was inspired to find out more on the web. Faithfully based on a true story and could be read alongside the recent Through my Eyes series about children living in war zones.

    15. Niko and his family live in Sarajevo and this book tells the terrible story of their life during the Bosnian War - the bombings, the snipers, the shortage of food etc. The book is very well written and while probably aimed at 10-13 year olds, it is a wonderful, quick adult read as well.

    16. Great book, clearly tells the story of how it was to live in Sarajevo, Bosnia during the war. Good to have it written from a child's point of view as the terminology was explained as part of the story. War is an horrific thing.

    17. A possible read-aloud book for my class next year? This was quite hard-hitting in places, but very real. Set in Sarajevo during the troubles there.

    18. DNF. This has been on my shelf too long. It's not that it's bad- it's okay- it's just that there are so many more books on my TBR and this is lower MG war story which isn't my thing at all.
