About the Book

A JOURNEY is the first-person account of a young woman’s stay on an Israeli kibbutz, as well as her subsequent travels in Europe. These experiences form a story of eye-opening exposure to new people and cultures, and are paralleled by the development of her relationship with a young European.

Readers who have hitch-hiked or traveled with little funds themselves years ago, packs on backs, should find it appealing. Young adult readers will also identify with the eagerness for new experiences and the difficulty in making major life decisions.
