The Almond Tree

The Almond Tree - Michelle Cohen Corasanti This was a beautiful book about the struggles of one Palestinian boy as his life is filled with chaos and constant grief and how he strives to make not only his life better but to make life better for his family. This fiction book gives readers a glimpse into the violence, chaos, and oppression that has been happening in Palestine for quite some time.I completely lost myself in this book. I felt like Ichmad's struggles were mine, and that his joys were mine. Michelle Cohen Corasanti masterfully writes a poignant tale that will open readers' eyes and their hearts. This was definitely one of my favorite books of the year. I highly recommend that everyone read this book, you will not be disappointed.[I received this book from a Librarything Member's Giveaway. The content of my review is in no way affected by that.]
