it was ok
Recommended for: if you want to learn about Palestine
Read in June, 2007

I read this for my post-colonialism class. Written by an Arab woman, it tells the story of the Israeli occupation of Palestine through the eyes of two cousins, one who believes in violent resistance and one who just believes in surviving day to day. Reading fiction such as these is a great way to understand sometimes complicated and confusing historical events in a human way. I recommend it to anyone looking to understand what the Palestians are going through in the struggle for their land.
