Awesome book!!!!
Submitted 7/4/2017 by lemonsqueak

This book made me think about Jewish history because there was a big war that Israel participated in 1967. I thought that it was interesting that the people had to go into bomb shelters under buildings when the war started and that the kids ran home from the bomb shelter in their school. This is a great book but a little bit sad. i don't want to tell you why because that will reveal too much. Read it to find out more about the Six-Day War.

a fun way to read about the six day war

I loved this book!

This book made me think more about friendship.

I read this book in two days! I am glad I chose this book out of all the others. People who risk their lives to save others, win a war, and a cat that saved two people! It is amazing to see how animals and people can save someone's life or more. Thank you for the book, pjourway.

Amazing book!

I liked this book.

This book taught me more about Israel.

This was a good, informative, interesting book that showed the Six-Day War from the perspective of a character that experienced the war as it happened, as well as reminding us that many people died in he war. I think that the author did a good job portraying a young Israeli child eager to be a hero, and fit in other characters that form unlikely bonds. I think that it is also good that the author didn't quite mince the main character's sibling's death, thus showing us that not everything was all fun and games.
