Content descriptions

Summary, etc.:
On a hot day in Bethlehem, a 12-year-old Palestinian-American girl is yelled at by a group of men outside the Church of the Nativity. She has exposed her legs in a biblical city, an act they deem forbidden, and their judgement will echo on through her adolescence. Told in vignettes that flash between the U.S. and the Middle East, Zaina Arafat traces her protagonist's progress from blushing teen to sought-after DJ and aspiring writer. In this strange, enclosed society she will start to consider the unnerving similarities between her own internal traumas and divisions and those of the places that have formed her.
