Riassunto: At the innocent age of fifteen, Selma is just beginning to experience the power of her first love. Unfortunately, living in Bosnia in 1992, Selma and her parents soon find themselves targets of the Bosnian War, and her father is arrested by the Serb Army and held for questioning. In an attempt to protect her daughter, Selma's mother sends Selma to stay with her aunt, but that seems to be a mistake. Days after arriving, the city is attacked, her family members are murdered before her eyes, and Selma is thrown into a concentration camp where she lives out her worst nightmare. After losing nearly all those she loves, being abused by those whom she once trusted, and witnessing prejudice at its ugliest, Selma isn't sure she even wants to stay alive. Will Selma ever escape from room ten alive? And if she does, will her broken spirit ever recover? Will she have any family to return to? Will she ever find love again? Follow Selma's journey through love, despair, hope, and peace in author Sanela Jurich's Remember Me. Experience the brutality of the Bosnian Genocide, but see how God's hand restores Selma's life tenfold. Understand the courage it takes to face your attackers and relive the pain in the name of justice. Discover whether love can blossom from beneath the rubble of war.

Dall'autore: I heard someone say once that in order to become a writer, you don't just learn the skill; you have to be born with it. It's inside you all along. It's your calling.

I strongly believe this to be true. I remember exactly the first set of books I've ever read. It was Greek Mythology given to me by an old neighbor. I was seven years old at the time.
I know, you might say that Greek Mythology is too complex for a seven-year-old, but to my-seven-year-old mind, this was fairy tales. I loved reading about those strong, smart, wise Gods and gorgeous Goddesses.
And as I was growing up, each time I'd feel lonely, or sad, I'd always go back and read those wonderful stories that never failed to inspire and make me feel better.
Soon after I read those, I had my library ticket and was spending most of my after-school time there. My parents didn't mind, since they both worked. I was left alone a lot, so the fact that I actually enjoyed being in a library was kind of like a relief to them.
I absolutely loved reading and so, in my heart, I knew that some day I was going to write cool stories to make people laugh and feel good. I wasn't going to write sad stories; all of them were going to be happy and fun. Filled with love. I'd sometimes write short stories just to amuse myself. They were filled with child's imagination, funny names, and, always, love...
At some point, I even started to think like I was reading a book. For example:
I'm having a normal conversation with a friend or someone, at the end of their sentence, I'd think to myself something like: She said, as she looked away. Or... she stated, but the icy look in her eyes said otherwise....

When I was fifteen years old, my whole life changed in a blink of an eye. The world I saw through my fifteen-year-old eyes was not innocent and pretty. It was filled with death, sadness, and hatred.
You see, I was born in this cute town of northern Bosnia, called Prijedor. Now days, this town is known for its horrible concentration camps that were run by the Serbs in 1992.
I know that when you hear the words "concentration camps" you think of the World War II and Nazis. But no, this was not our grandparents generation time, this was our generation, 1992... on the threshold of the 21st century.
I remember my parents talking and thinking that this war was going to end before it could even start... the world would not let another Nazi genocide go on.
But, to our surprise, the world did let it happen. It went on for four years: genocide, ethnic cleansing, concentration camps, raping and slaughtering women and children...
It all happened.
And so my writing had to be put on hold.
When I finally moved to the United States in 1993, I was a completely changed person then. My dream of becoming a writer became just that... a dream; so distant and unreachable. I thought that even if, somehow, I managed to learn enough English, I could never write happy, fun stories any more. My mind was reset and it was filled with darkness, pain, and distrust.

But in time, little by little, my sense of humor returned. The writer in me was getting tired of being quiet. So I started thinking like I was in a book again.

For example; I'd go to the Six Flags with my husband, children, and our friends, but because I'm afraid of heights, I wouldn't go on any of the rides. (I know... I bore myself sometimes too).
So, anyway, I'd sit on the bench and wait for them to get off their rides. It's perfect because the place is always crowded which gives me a chance to just watch people undetected. For example, I'd see a guy talking to a girl. I'd watch their facial expressions and body language to determine whether they like each other, so my inner analogue would go something like: "I don't care," she said firmly. Turning around, she smiled, ever so slightly.... Etc.

One day in July of 2009 on my way to work, I dropped off my two boys over at my mom's house. She had made some comment about my kids, which got me a little upset and I thought to myself, boy, if this was a book, that comment would be perfect...
And so, my mind started building a web of events and before I knew it, I had about three chapters. The character of Sabina, the mother, was born...
