The story is well written with much emphasis on the dysfunctional extended family and Joe's futile efforts to understand the actions of the adults around him. The trauma he experiences from the War leave him scarred long after his return to Chicago to reunite with the family that abandoned him there.
The story moves along effortlessly, the characters well developed and supportive of the narrative. The Author appears to have carefully researched various aspects of the West Bank and the surrounding Locale to present an authentic and believable setting for the story. He (the Author) tells his story dispassionately without choosing sides or offering opinions. Disregarding the few typos that are to be expected in a first printing, and should be cleaned up shortly (?), I highly recommend this book to anyone looking for a true coming of age story set amongst the brutality of War.
