"Until the lion tells his side of the story through
the media network - uncensored by hunters,
the tale of the hunt will always glorify the hunter."

"Mornings in Jenin" is a multi-generational story about a Palestinian family. It is a deeply human novel - a novel of history, identify, friendship, love, terrorism, surrender, courage, and hope. "Mornings in Jenin" forces us to take a fresh look at one of the defining conflicts of our times.

Susan Abulhawa is a renowned academic advocate of Palestinian rights. She founded "Playgrounds for Palestine", an NGO that builds playgrounds in Palestine and UN refugee camps in Lebanon.

"A heart-wrenching, powerfully written novel that could do for Palestine what 'The Kite Runner' did for Afghanistan."
