The Countdown Begins

Only two months until I launch my next book, The Book of Trees. I'm quite curious to see how it will be received since it's about a controversial topic: the Israel/Palestine conflict. The Book of Trees is about a Jewish girl who goes to Israel to study for the summer. While she's there she learns about the Israeli occupation of Palestinian lands. Because Anne Laurel Carter's excellent book, The Shepherd's Granddaughter which is also about Israel and Palestine received so much attention, I'm hoping my book will too. I'm planning on blogging about how it's received.
