Description

Tal, a French teen, settles in Jerusalem with her family.  She puts a letter in a bottle, which is tossed into the sea near Gaza, expressing her dismay at the hatred that exists between Israelis and Palestinians.  Weeks later, Tal receives a response via e-mail from a mysterious “Gazaman,” a young Palestinian named Naim.  This modern day Romeo and Juliet tale is based on the award-winning novel by Valerie Zenatti.

Recommended for ages 13 and over.
