    Return

    The Return by Sonia Levintin is a compelling, moving account from the viewpoint of a Jewish African Ethiopian teenager. The government and citizens discriminate against the Jews, call them ¿Falasha,¿ an Ethiopian word for stranger, and blame things such as droughts and floods on them. When two white Americans come to see if African Jews really exist in the world, they hear of a land called Israel. The tribe believes --- wants them to come to Israel, however, there is dispute if these foreigners speak the truth. Also, the government does not allow migration out of Ethiopia. There are soldiers and bandits who will kill and rob them. The village Rabbi finally decides to have the village leave. But a day before departure, soldiers show up at the village. The desert terrain is hostile and the soldiers and bandits merciless. The Return is unpredictable and exciting. It is definitely a book I would enjoy a second time.
