"My name is Tzviki Green. I'm the boy you heard about and read about in connection with the scary story of the hostages captured in Singler's Supermarket in Jerusalem". "The story itself is true, but some of the reports were exaggerated?" Tzviki Green: a young Israeli boy uprooted from his comfortable, familiar home and transplanted to the frightening newness of America. Aryeh Singler: Tzviki's best friend. Roshover chassid and talmudic genius, so different from Tzviki, and yet so much like him. Their friendship is in jeopardy, until they face a common enemy. Miri: Tzviki's sister. Her life was changed on the day she was almost toppled by a girl she never saw before. Judy: The girl whose meeting with Miri brought light into her life...until the sudden separation that plunged them both into the dark.
