The Chosen, Paperback Book


Following a baseball game that nearly became a religious war, two Jewish boys become friends.

Danny comes from the strict Hasidic sect that keeps him bound in centuries of orthodoxy.

Reuven is brought up by a father patently aware of the twentieth century.

Everything tries to destroy their friendship, but they use honesty with each other as a shield and it proves an impenetrable protection.
