Synopsis

From the celebrated author of The Chosen and My Name is Asher Lev comes an outstanding work of fiction for young adults.
Zebra and Other Stories charts moments of grief, crisis, or change for its teenage protagonists: an injury; the loss of a parent; one family's remembered grief, another's thinly buried secrets; the complex hopes that accompany a birth and the shattering impact of death. Containing six stories that are rich in drama and sharp in understanding, this is a memorable collection from a master storyteller that speaks clearly to young adults.
