This was a very wonderful debut novel. It was a thought provoking book, which helped me further understand the hardships in the Middle East. With heart-wrenching details, author Michelle Cohen Corasanti wrote a very beautiful tale of a young boy living in Palestine that quickly captured my heart.
The story and characters in this book were well built. It was fascinating to read how the story followed the boy as he grew into an older man. The characters were easy to sympathize with and were realistic. This was simply a profound book.
