A heartbreaking account of the 6 day war in 1967 Palestine from the perspective of a 3 year old as she grows up. I felt like I was there with Ibtisam and her family, experiencing the fear, rage, sorrow, and mischievous moments. The very real, gritty side of war and occupation that continues for so many people to this day.
