Samir, a young Palestinian boy, lies in an Israeli children's hospital ward. The author tells the classic unlikely-friendships-and falling-of-walls story while avoiding triteness. It was really beautifully written, the kind of book where if you take the time to read it very slowly, every sentence and paragraph holds a little treasure. But for some reason, overall, it failed to motivate me to read it very slowly.
