    3. It is difficult to talk about Palestine and Israel with out being polemical The conversation often falls into policy, politics and history that maintains an impossible place of resolution for many.Laird paints a picture of occupation that is both relevant and frustrating Her story holds a human element that often gets lost in ideology and politics Laird walks her audience through exhaustive curfews inflicted on Ramallah, Palestinians by the Israelis through Karim, a twelve year old boy protagoni [...]

    4. For someone who has read The Diary of Anne Frank too many times to count, this was an important book to read The book follows the lives of a Palestinian family and their friends, told primarily through the eyes of an adolescent young man who aspires to become a professional soccer player, despite curfews that curtail his ability to spend time outside doing much of anything.If the mark of an educated person is to consider all sides of important issues, we probably need books like this one books [...]

    5. This is a middle school story about Karim, his family, and his friends, all Palestinian, facing the roadblocks and bullets of the Israelis I have read so many books from the perspective of the Israelis It is important to remember that there is no single story When countries and people are at war, the innocent always suffer, by all the countries involved in conflict.Karim s grandparents land was taken, olive groves and all Curfews were a daily part of Ramallah, the small town in Palestine where K [...]

    6. I picked this up because it s about Palestinians and soccer, both topics I have an interest in However, I was a little leery of it being a book pitched at teenage readers I was worried that it would either be too simplistic, or didactic, or mawkish Fortunately, it is none of those things rather, it is a nuanced story with a Palestinian boy at its center that any reader can relate to Karim is a pretty typical 12 year obsessed with soccer and video games, constantly annoyed by his younger sister a [...]

    7. I can t remember the last time I read something that offered me such a different perspective than the one I am used to hearing about I don t know this is something typical of most people in the United States due to media coverage, or whether it s personal because I know Jews than Muslims, but the plight of the Palestinians has never really been something I knew very much about You hear the news reports of bombings, the words West Bank and Gaza Strip, but I personally was ignorant about what li [...]

    13. Really good book I learnt a lot from it and it is sad, funny, and it just makes me tingle when i look at the cover

    14. I gave this book 3 stars for many different reasons This book was generally a good book for younger ages I say this because it does not have all the in depth detail that many other books have This book talks to much about the war, and not enough about the adventurous little boy in the story The little boy in the story is very great at soccer and has to escape from the army to play soccer, the author should have focused on this part of the story and not on the army oppressing the citizens.

    15. This has been the best book I have read this Year It is Amazing The Main Character shows so much resilience to the is Isralies I really Love his Passion to free Palestine and also to play soccer.I think a really underrated Character in this book is Hopper He will not stop at anything till Palestine is Free.All in All, I Highly recommend this book

    16. This book will draw you directly into the conflict in occupied Palestine and clarify for anyone the reality of apartheid from the clear eyed perspective of a child who wants to grow up and play football but is faced with so much .

    17. Very insightful book for tweens on the Palestine situation Rich characters who you immediately like and empathize with.
