There’s a new book coming! Beni’s War, the story of Motti’s younger brother from The Six-Day Hero will be available in 2020! I can’t wait to share this book with you. Unlike Motti, who practically wrote his book himself, Beni was much harder to write about. He’s shy and sensitive. It took us a while to get to know each other. But the kid notices everything. And when his home is suddenly attacked on Yom Kippur and his family has to evacuate, Beni quickly realizes that nothing will ever be the same.
With Motti on the front lines, Beni and his family struggle with fear for their beloved brother and son. As the war drags on, Beni becomes convinced that his brother needs him to return home safely. The crazy thing is, Beni just might be right.
To save Motti, 12 year-old Beni will embark on the trip of a lifetime. With school bullies who have their own scars, a small but mighty dog named Goliath, and a reckless driver with a heart of gold, Beni’s War tells the story of an Israeli family through the series of wars Israel fought.
