Rate this:
Picking up where Tasting the Sky left off, Balcony on the Moon follows Ibtisam Barakat through her childhood and adolescence in Palestine from 1972-1981 and chronicles her desire to be a writer. Ibtisam finds inspiration through writing letters to pen pals and from an adult who encourages her to keep at it, but the most surprising turn of all for Ibtisam happens when her mother decides that she would like to seek out an education, too. This memoir is a touching, at times funny, and enlightening look at the not often depicted daily life in a politically tumultuous area.A Margaret Ferguson Book

Read this book! Ibtisam tells her story of growing up in the West Bank with great warmth. Ibtisam makes you care about her and her large Palestinian family. I devoured this and am looking forward to reading Tasting the Sky.
