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 and older brother and chafing at life under constant threat of military occupation and curfew in Ramallah The story follows his new friendship with a refugee boy in parallel with his close friendship with a Christian schoolmate Their antics are both entirely plausible and utterly chilling in the stakes that are involved What the book does best of all is portray the difficulty of trying to live a normal life let alone build a future in a place where an outsider s tanks might roll down the streets and destroy your school at any moment To be sure I suppose most would consider this a pro Palestinian story but it s really a pro humanity story
