BECOMING NOA

Coming soon


Seventeen-year-old Noa is not about to let a few bombs wreck her perfectly-planned plans to skip senior year and start college early overseas.

Is the situation ideal? Hardly. But does she have a choice? Yeah, a crystal clear one: white sand beaches and turquoise water, exotic markets, and thousands of years of history brought to life—or heading directly down an academic tunnel that stretched nearly forever.

The resident adviser in her dorm is Yael, a college student moonlighting for Shin Bet, Israel’s secret service agency. She is one tough, cool chick, and pity the man who thinks otherwise.

Fatik is a Palestinian refugee who comes to see Noa as the embodiment of all that’s wrong with his country.

And Rami—sweet, gorgeous, and open-minded, is Fatik’s Arab-Israeli cousin, caught in the middle of this seemingly endless conflict.

The four young people have little in common, but their lives—and perspectives—intertwine as they take their turns telling this tragic love story, the first installment of the planned Noa series.

Realistic YA fiction set smack dab in the
middle of the Israeli-Palestinian Conflict
