Product Overview

The story of a lost dog, and the discovery of first love on the streets of Jerusalem are portrayed here with a gritty realism that is as fresh as it is compelling.
When awkward and painfully shy sixteen-year-old Assaf is asked to find the owner of a stray yellow lab, he begins a quest that will bring him into contact with street kids and criminals, and a talented young singer, Tamar, engaged on her own mission: to rescue a teenage drug addict.
A runaway bestseller in Israel, in the words of the "Christian Science Monitor": "It''s time for Americans to fall in love with "Someone to Run With.""

"[A]greeably melodramatic....Grossman's most entertaining book yet."
"[A] cross between RUN LOLA RUN and OLIVER TWIST....Grossman evokes teen-age nobility and self-hatred in all its pimply particularity, while slyly suggesting that the arduous quest for connections should never be outgrown."
