The city has been torn in half by civil war and a desolate, dangerous no man's land divides the two sides.
Oranges In No Man's Land is a piece of popular fiction by Elizabeth Laird. The book Oranges in no man’s land by Elizabeth Laird was horrible, hands down one of the worst books I have ever read, and I’m not trying to be Gordon Ramsey, but get off my reading list. Nothing in the book made you want to read it, and the plot line was predictable. The reader finds himself in Lebanon during a war, bombs dropping, people dying, and food in short supply. The protagonist Ayesha is a ten year old girl who is living in the warzone with only her two brothers and a grandma who has health issues.

Oranges in No Man’s Land tells the riveting story of ten-year-old Ayesha’s terrifying journey across no man’s land to reach a doctor in hostile territory in search of medicine for her dying grandmother.
Set in Lebanon during the civil war, this story is told by award-winning author Elizabeth Laird and is based on personal, real-life events. Elizabeth stayed on the green line in Beirut in 1977 in a war-damaged flat with her husband and six-month-old son. Memories of her son sleeping in a suitcase on the floor, taking his first steps on the bullet-riddled balcony, playing with the soldiers on the checkpoint, and her husband racing through no man’s land in the buildup to a battle have all inspired this gripping and moving story.
