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.""
From the Publisher:
Capturing the lives of Israeli street kids, a new novel by the author of Be My Knife follows two teenagers--Assaf, a shy and awkward sixteen year old, and Tamar, a talented young singer--and the missing dog that brings them together.
Assaf is a Jerusalem teenager who finds a lost dog and seeks to take it back to its owner, a girl named Tamar. His quest to find her, with all its attendant dangers and misadventures, ends with the discovery of a most unusual heroine.


Kirkus Reviews
"[A]greeably melodramatic....Grossman's most entertaining book yet." 10/15/2003

New Yorker
"[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." 02/16/2004
