Zebra Forest

Adina Gewirtz

Annie and her brother Rew live with their grandmother in a house surrounded by black and white trees they call “Zebra Forest.” Their mother left and their father is presumed dead – Annie and Rew spend hours spinning stores about their heroic father. He is a pilot, a special agent, or a war hero in their imagination. One night there is a prison break and a desperate fugitive forces his way into their home. Anger, fear, and longing envelop the family as they deal with this angry stranger. This compelling debut novel features flawed people with redeeming qualities – an emotionally honest story with a hopeful ending. Ages 9-11
