"Profoundly moving....The conflict between Jews and Arabs has been described in countless books and argued in unending polemics, but here, in the letters between these two eighteen-year-old women, an Arab and a Jew, is the heartbreaking essence of the quarrel.... In these letters (an idea brilliantly conceived and carried through by Sylke Tempel) Amal and Odelia educate each other..... This is the book for anyone who wants to feel and understand the emotions on both sides. It will become a classic." -Arthur Hertzberg, author of A Jew in America: My Life and a People's Struggle for IdentityRifa'i, Amal is the author of 'We Just Want to Live Here A Palestinian Teenager, an Israeli Teenager, an Unlikely Friendship', published 2003 under ISBN 9780312318949 and ISBN 0312318944.
