Join us as local author Tammar Stein shares from her new book THE SIX-DAY HERO, which is a Junior Library Guild Selection, a PJ Our Way Selection, and the only middle-grade novel about the Six Day War!
Motti knows that war is coming. Israel is only nineteen years old – the same age as Motti’s brave older brother, Gideon – and the tiny country is surrounded by enemies. It’s only a matter of time before Egypt, Jordan and Syria attack. Motti wishes he could join the Israeli army like Gideon and be a hero. But when his best friend’s family flees the country and his brother goes off to fight, Motti realizes this war isn’t a game. His family is in danger, and Israel’s very survival is at stake.
