Read in July, 2010

This book begins somewhat slowly and seems predictable at first, but it introduces the reader to a side of the Middle East not seen in the media or in textbooks. Students will learn such facts as the difference between an Arab and a Palestinian, and about the complexities of the relationships they share with one another and their homeland. The story is told from a very unique perspective in that the main character has lived her entire life in America before her family moves to Israel.
