it was amazing

Oddly I read this book right after finishing "From Beirut to Jerusalem". While the story is fiction, all the facts & history surrounding the Middle East are accurate. So if you want to learn about this complicated region but do not like non fiction tomes, this will fit you to a tee. Once again you come away feeling sad for both sides and a great understanding of just how complex the issues are. It's a mess kids and I just don't see how it will ever be "tamed". The very first step is both sides need to "hear" the others narratives and stop rehasing the past. Difficult to do, of course but it sure beats the way they are living now.
