BALCONY ON THE MOON, by Ibtisam Barakat


The story: Ibtisam shares her story of growing up in Palestine in the 1970s-80s, when dreams were real but just about everything else was in short supply. Her life is proof that with hard work (okay, and some luck) you really can make a better life for yourself.


Mrs. Friend’s opinion: Great for readers looking for more information about the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, and how it impacts the lives of everyone in the region.
