Where the streets had a name – Randa Abdel-Fattah

Thirteen-year-old Hayaat is a Muslin Palestinian girl living in Bethlehem. When Hayaat’s grandmother becomes ill, Hayaat believes a handful of soil from her grandmother’s ancestral home in Jerusalem will save her life. Together with her best friend Samy, Hayaat embarks on the short but dangerous journey to Jerusalem. They must pass through armed checkpoints and find a way around the impenetrable wall that divides the West Bank. Told from the point of view of the displaced this is a moving story of family, loss and heartache.
