This is an intense coming of age story about a very serious teen who was raised in an ultra orthodox Jewish community in New York. Interestingly, the author incorporates the (presumably) fictional protagonist forming a teacher student relationship with Eido Roshi, presumably Eido Shimano, a famous controversial Zen teacher. At any rate, the writing was superb. Exceptional for a self-published novel. There are a number of typos -- I would encourage the author to pay a professional copy editor to do a line edit.
The story was a page-turner, holding my attention to the end. I just stumbled on it, looking for spiritual YA fiction. I have no connection to the author.
