Objection: the CJC said that Ellis had provided a flawed historical introduction to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. The CJC said some children in the book portrayed Israeli soldiers as brutal, expressed ethnic hatred and glorified suicide bombing. The effect on young readers was "toxic"

I really enjoyed this book. I read it in 3 hours. The stories were really touching, and it made me sad to see these children hurt by war and hatred. It's amazing that most of the children have dreams of studying art. I'm curious to know, how does a war even start? There are some quotes I really liked, but I won't post them here.

An excellent collection of views and opinions from children from both Isreali and Palestinian children who are affected by the war. Though controversial, it is an excellent eye opener for children as it is a first hand account of what life is like in a less fortunate country.
