OLDER FICTION
Bagdasarian, Adam

Forgotten Fire

(1) YA This vividly, even horrifically, evoked novel tells of the genocide carried out against Armenians in Turkey during World War I. Like narrator Vahan Kenderian, who is twelve when the novel begins, a reader can't really prepare for this relentless tragedy before it unfolds. That the book is based on Bagdasarian's great-uncle's experiences gives it further gravity.
