  One More River  
  Alice by Acident

14 year-old Lesley loves her life in Canada.  Her family is wealthy, she’s successful at school and has a good social life.   But one day her father announces that he’s taking his family to Israel in order that they can be more fully Jewish. Lesley tries to rebel, but once she gets to her new country and finds herself in a left-wing kibbutz, she can’t resist its excitements and challenges. A strange relationship with an Arab boy across the River Jordan has a major influence on the new Lesley, as does the reappearance of her banished brother in the run-up to the Six Day War.   

Set in the 1960s, this is an exciting story about how an outsider becomes an insider in a pioneering new country.
