Thirteen-year-old Hayaat is on a mission. She believes a handful of soil from her grandmother's ancestral home in Jerusalem will save her beloved Sitti Zeynab's life. The only problem is the impenetrable wall that divides the West Bank, as well as the check points, the curfews, the permit system and Hayaat's best friend Samy, who is mainly interested in football and the latest elimination on X-Factor, but always manages to attract trouble. But luck is on their side. Hayaat and Samy have a curfew-free day to travel to Jerusalem. However, while their journey may only be a few kilometres long, it may take a lifetime to complete.

    " this is really good. really easy medium to lean what a young person's life could look like in occupied Palestine today, and also some current politics in the region. "

    " Where the Streets Had a Name is a wonderful and unique young adult novel that was an eye-opener to me about the current situation in the Middle East. The subject matter is quite heavy but told in such a way that the book remains easy to digest. And it's surprisingly even funny at times! A really great novel for teenagers as well as adults as it's fascinating to read a perspective on this situation, with real people you easily fall in love with, that isn't just a factual newspaper article. "

    " This must have been on about a 7th grade reading level, for it was a page-turner, easier to read, but had complex topics in it. what a delicate way of intertwining the problems in Bethlehem and its surroundings into a tale of courage, love, loss, forgiveness and hope. A lovely story told courageously-no political agenda or hate. Good book. "

    " I won this book from Firstreads. It was a good book that was able to show the conflicts (the curfews and checkpoints) in a human way. It also showed how even in bad circumstances it is important to dream and hope. "
