Book description:
What would you do if your brother turned out to be your enemy?

When a child tries to understand something about his parents’ relationship, his vision is distorted, funny and touching. If his father has a lover, how could he not be cheating on his wife? Is it possible that all three, and even the lover’s husband knew and agreed to this?

“..Dad tries to Shake off Huda unsuccessfully He’s Stuck to her back. I do not understand what’s happening, should I call for help?..”

Little Abram’s thoughts raced when he saw his father in the workshop studio with his sick mother’s maid, who also happens to be the mother of his best friend. He did not understand why Atef, his best friend, had left him after this incident.

When he grew up he had realized what he had seen. He was furious with his father for his betrayal. The Anger and the hurt had turned into an obsession, as Abram is Jewish and Atef is Arab .
The complex relationship will fascinate you, and all the doubts and questions that arise in the child’s mind, will lead you to gradually uncover this family’s secrets.
