In this sequel to
The Six-Day Hero
, by Tammar Stein, Beni is unhappy when his family moves from bustling Jerusalem to a remote moshav, a collective farm. There Beni makes a new friend, Sara, and new adversaries, Ori and Yoni. Beni’s older brother Motti, a soldier in the Israeli army, can back him up in a fight, but Beni knows that sometimes Motti must be away to fight for Israel.
Everything changes as the quiet of the holy day of Yom Kippur is shattered with hundreds of artillery shells falling on the moshav. Egypt and Syria have attacked, and war has come to Israel once again. Motti must return to his unit, and Beni’s nemesis, Yoni, moves in with Beni’s family when his baby brother is injured. As the war continues and worries mount about the fates of Motti as well as Sara’s brother Yuval, Beni learns the importance of friendship, and being brave enough to act when the time comes.
