Some­one to Run With

  • From the Publisher
August 1, 2014

The sto­ry of a lost dog, and the dis­cov­ery of first love on the streets of Jerusalem are por­trayed here with a grit­ty real­ism that is as fresh as it is compelling.

When awk­ward and painful­ly shy six­teen-year-old Assaf is asked to find the own­er of a stray yel­low lab, he begins a quest that will bring him into con­tact with street kids and crim­i­nals, and a tal­ent­ed young singer, Tamar, engaged on her own mis­sion: to res­cue a teenage drug addict.

A run­away best­seller in Israel, in the words of the Chris­t­ian Sci­ence Mon­i­tor: It’s time for Amer­i­cans to fall in love with Some­one to Run With.”
