Broken Bridge by Lynne Reid Banks

The murder of fourteen-year-old Glen Shelby, soon after his arrival in Israel to visit his father's family, has a dramatic effect on the lives of his relatives, the other members of their kibbutz, and the Arabs responsible for his death. - SBCL

This novel about the struggle of religion and ideology depicts life in present-day Israel. Bombings and explosions in the kibbutz make the inhabitants begin to wonder if the perpetrator is from the inside or the outside. - CDE
