You know how a seminary girl feels coming back to America after an amazing year spent in Eretz Yisrael? Inspired, uplifted, and longing to return to the Holy Land, like, this minute?
I had a taste of those feelings when I finished reading Round Trip. I know, I know, it’s a book for tweens/teens, and no, I can’t say I fit in that age bracket these days…but there’s something just so…so beautiful about this book, it hits you no matter how old you are. I think it’s because the story is set in Yerushalayim as we know it today, the magnificent city filled with an equally magnificent population that is comprised of both passionate Yerushalmim and idealistic Americans choosing to make their homes there.
As you read this fast-paced and fun story, your mind fills with images of Rechov Sorotzkin, and the one-of-a-kind nursing home called Nevei Simchah, and makolet owners who are hidden tzaddikim, and so many other beautiful facets about Yerushalayim, all of which pull at the heartstrings of every Jew…
Give your tween/teen a peek into this wonderful world, by buying this book for her. And when you start reading it one night too, well, at least you’ll know you’re in good company!
