    I missed all the controversy around this book. I have to add this one. It sounds like an important read! You’ve written a great review!

    This sounds like a really good book. I don’t think that books should be banned, I think that students need to be taught to think critically and pick out what is important. This book sounds really great – but with any issue there is always two sides. Students could definitely benefit from reading this book and discussing how there are two sides to every story and why you can’t just automatically agree with anything you read, the same as you can’t simply take as fact what you see on the TV or hear on the radio!

    This sounds like an interesting book. I think it’s important to look at both sides of issues (which I’m sure you could teach children/young adults) and the Palestinian side certainly seems to be given less attention in the West. So I’d say it’s a good thing it wasn’t banned.
