Thirteen-year-old Hayaat is on a mission. She believes a handful of soil from her grandmother's ancestral home in Jerusalem will save her beloved Sitti Zeynab's life. The only problem is the impenetrable wall that divides the West Bank, as well as the checkpoints, the curfews, the permit system and Hayaat's best friend Samy, who is mainly interested in football and the latest elimination on X-Factor, but always manages to attract trouble. But luck is on their side. Hayaat and Samy have a curfew-free day to travel to Jerusalem. However, while their journey may only be a few kilometres long, it may take a lifetime to complete.

About the Author:

Randa Abdel-Fattah is an attorney, a writer, a chocoholic, and an active member in the interfaith community, as well as the campaign for Palestinian human rights. She is the author of the critically acclaimed novels DOES MY HEAD LOOK BIG IN THIS? and TEN THINGS I HATE ABOUT ME, both published by Orchard Books. She is also the author of the forthcoming middle-grade novel, WHERE THE STREETS HAD A NAME, published by Scholastic Press. Ms. Abdel-Fattah lives in Sydney, Australia, with her husband and their children.

From AudioFile:

Hayaat, a 13-year-old Palestinian girl, has a disfiguring scar from an incident of violence that killed her best friend. Her family tries to make sense out of the chaos they live in, suffering heartache yet clinging to hope. Narrator Kellie Jones never allows bitterness toward Israelis to creep into Hayaat's tone, instead presenting a bright youngster with an adventurous, indomitable spirit. This audiobook begins with a glossary of Palestinian terms. Unfortunately, presenting a glossary at the beginning of a listening experience is both distracting and inconvenient, particularly for young listeners. Without context clues, by the time the terms appear in the story, the listener has likely forgotten their meaning. It's too bad because, otherwise, Jones does a fine narration of an underexplored subject: the problems faced by Palestinian families living in occupied territory. S.J.H.
