Waiting on Wednesday (11)

Book: Mackenzie, Lost and Found
Author: Deborah Kerbel

Summary:

Fifteen-year-old Mackenzie Hill knows something is up when she arrives home to find her father making a home-cooked dinner, instead of his standard delivery pizza. But nothing prepares her for the bombshell announcement: Mackenzie and her dad, alone since the death of her mother a year ago, are moving to Jerusalem, where her father has taken a position as a visiting professor at a university.

The adjustment from life in Canada to life in Israel is dramatic - though it's eased somewhat when Mackenzie is befriended by an American girl in her new school. The biggest shock of all comes when Mackenzie faces the wrath of her new friends, new community, and even her own father after she begins dating a Muslim boy.

Why?

Yes, I do realize that this book was already released! However, it looks really good. I like the whole idea of her going to Isreal and finding herself. It's like a whole new twist on the Finding Yourself theme.
