Note: 
A minute-by-minute account in real time of a terrorist bombing in Jerusalem, told from many different perspectives and in varying narrative styles. The plot is suspenseful, involving teenagers whose need to discover their pasts has taken them to Israel, and the denoument is chilling. In addition to its outstanding literary qualities, this is a very rare objective look at modern Israel, Palestinians, and terrorism. Teachers searching for thought-provoking and unbiased fiction about the current Israeli-Palestinian conflict could not do better than to assign this book. Winner of the 2004 Sydney Taylor Book Award for Older Readers.
