The Almond Tree By Michelle Cohen Corasanti

The Almond TreeThe Almond Tree is the saga of a young Palestinian boy’s journey from his village, where he lived under the threat of losing his home, imprisonment, and even death, as the Israelis took over his homeland.  Ahmed Hamid (Ichmad) is blessed with incredible math talent and a scientific mindset. Using his talents, he teamed up with Professor Menachem Sharon at Hebrew University and little by little the two whittled away their prejudices to continue their ground-breaking research, become the best of friends, and travel to America to continue their research at Massachusetts Institute of Technology.

The Almond Tree is written from the author’s point of view as an American Jew living in Palestine while a student at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem.  Corasanti’s trip from the United States to Israel, where she attended high school, opened her eyes to a world different than what she knew.
