Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The day after Liyana got her first real kiss, her life changed forever. Not because of the kiss, but because it was the day her father announced that the family was moving from St. Louis all the way to Palestine. Though her father grew up there, Liyana knows very little about her family's Arab heritage. Her grandmother and the rest of her relatives who live in the West Bank are strangers, and speak a language she can't understand. It isn't until she meets Omer that her homesickness fades. But Omer is Jewish, and their friendship is silently forbidden in this land. How can they make their families understand? And how can Liyana ever learn to call this place home?

Synopsis:

An award-winning first novel about the ties of family, friendship, and love. "What is it like to be young in Palestine today? This is the focus of this stirring docunovel, which breaks new ground in YA fiction."--"Booklist, " boxed review.

Synopsis:

In this award-winning first novel by the acclaimed poet, a 14-year-old Arab-American girl moves to Jerusalem and falls in love with a Jewish boy--challenging her family, culture, and tradition.
