Note: 
An Israeli teen explores her options for military service as she approaches high school graduation. Through Aggie's experiences, a very positive picture of modern Israel is given: its diversity, the normalcy of life despite terrorism, its people's patriotism and sense of responsibility to one another and their country. The plot moves from combat boot camp to a wedding in a bomb shelter while Aggie, her friends, and her family are believable and sympathetic characters. One of the best newer novels by an Israeli about contemporary Israeli life and Israel's fragile security.
