Yael, Avishag and Lea are typical teens coming of age in an atypical environment—a country in a state of continual hostility with its neighbors and ever-present fear of attacks on civilians. It is modern Israel. The three friends are drafted into the Israeli Defense Force and fulfill their two years of service training shooters, monitoring border checkpoints, flirting with boys, remembering their girlhoods in a tiny village on the Lebanese border, and wondering about the future. This intense, caustic, funny and disturbing novel moves back and forth in time and between protagonists and shows how a culture of violence shapes its young citizens. It’s a war story about teenage girls this time, and it is remarkable. Check Our Catalog
