Note: 
Three pro-Palestinian assumptions underly this book: The UN is an honest broker. The West Bank is occupied. Refugee camps are inevitable. Despite this, the heart of the book - interviews that the author conducted - is heart-wrenching. The mistrust and hatred that separate these Israeli and Palestinian children will take at least a generation to overcome, when and if peace is achieved. Unlike several previous books that purport to represent the voices of these children of conflict, this does not appear to manipulate them to favor the Palestinian side. It is an excellent book for classroom reading and discussion. Beware: the bibliography contains several very anti-Israel books.
