A Hand Full of Stars

(1990)
A novel by

 
 
Experience a wonderfully complex world of characters and cultures as you explore modern Damascus with a spirited teenage boy.
Amid the turmoil of modern Da-mascus, one teenage boy finds his political voice in a message of re-bellion that echoes throughout Syria and as far away as Western Europe. Inspired by his dearest friend, old Uncle Salim, he begins a journal to record his thoughts and impressions of family, friends, life at school, and his growing feelings for his girlfriend, Nadia. Soon the hidden diary be-comes more than just a way to re-member his daily adventures; on its pages he explores his frustration with the government injustices he witnesses. His courage and ingenuity finally find an outlet when he and his friends begin a subversive under-ground newspaper.

Warmed by a fine sense of humor, this novel is at once a moving love story and a passionate testimony to the difficult and committed actions being taken by young people around the world. This book is not only suited for teenagers, it is also quite exciting to read for adults!
