Hello again, savvy savers! Today finds us with another book review, and this time the The Tenth by Smadar Shir, winner of the Acum’s Award for 2007, describes a unique relationship between Asaf – a mischievous youth, curious and smart, who lost his mother, hand and leg – and Stav, a young journalist, who sent to interview him in preparation for his tenth surgery. Stav wants to publish his story because she thinks he is a hero. Asaf claims that he is not.He was only seated in a restaurant and waited for the food to be served when a terrorist came in and exploded. Stav thinks that Asaf should have the 10th surgery. In that surgery the doctors will remove the shards from his face. Asaf disagrees because he doesn’t want to forget. He wants that his scarred face, as it would be a reminder to the modern Israeli day-to-day reality. This quick book, also available on audio book as well as Hebrew editions, is a great summer read for action genre fans! To find out more about this edition, click here!
