Note: 
Aspects of the Israeli - Palestinian conflict are skillfully explored in this novel about the disappearance of an Israeli teen living in Los Angeles. By giving the suspenseful story an American setting and centering most of the action on middle school students, Miklowitz succeeds in creating both a readable mystery and a balanced portrayal of Israeli and Palestinian points of view. Add to this the important role that the Internet plays in the story and you have an outstanding blend of issues and action. Following a recent trend in novels for this age group, the ending is unhappy. Excellent for class discussion and book groups.
