If you read the book you will learn about the eighties, Israel, and friendship.

Review by Aidan

I read this book and I loved it! The book takes place in the eighties, which makes it much more old school and interesting. It takes place outside of New York City. I rate this book 8/10. I gave it this because most of the book has many details, but in some spots it has just a few too many details. I think that people between the ages of 10-11 will like this book because it is a little too mature for kids younger that this. If you like horror stories, Israeli stories, drama, or old-school books, than this is the book for you.
