About this deal

Gold­berg employs pathos, sen­si­tiv­i­ty, and hon­esty as he cen­ters nar­ra­tives of friend­ship and relationships. Both Scott and Martha are bullied by the rest of their class, but they refuse to tell their parents or teachers what is happening to them. Ezra, now an athe­ist, works for the gov­ern­ment, lives a mod­ern life, and is in a ten­u­ous rela­tion­ship with his girl­friend. The two men are living very different lives: Ezra is a secular atheist, while Yonatan is now a rabbi teaching at the Yahel Academy.

This theme may be something being influenced by children themselves and so, whilst discussion of bullying would and should be an important part of discussing the text, it would need to be handled with appropriate consideration. This attitude leads him to defend the socially outcast girl from the bullies rendering him their next target.You have to work so hard as you can in next month, otherwise our company close forever and you will lost your job forever. The policemens entered the house they discovered Martha locked in cellar where the six-year-old child live. But when a scandal rocks their Jewish community, the boys are separated when Ezra’s parents remove him from the school that has hid a predator and Yonatan’s family remains committed to their faith. Initially, I suppose I was interested in fate, or rather the paths we start out on and then the paths our lives take. I would rate this book 5/5 because it is very good and hooks the reader in, once you have started to read you won't want to stop reading until you have finished because it is so gripping.

Ashley Goldberg invites the reader into the world of modern Australian Judaism - particularly the ultra conservative part of this community. Admirers of Chaim Potok’s The Chosen and Lisa Emanuel’s more recent The Covered Wife will welcome this deftly plotted and thoughtfully realised novel of friendship, trauma, faith and identity. Melbourne 1999: Ezra and Yonatan are best friends whose lives are forever changed when their school, the ultra-Orthodox Jewish Yahel Academy, is rocked by a scandal and they are thrown onto divergent paths. But she also, at one point, stands up to her brother, Menachem, for similar thinking, and she has a similar hypocritical conundrum going on with regards to her own pregnancy.Meanwhile, Yonatan’s growing renewed friendship with Ezra and Ezra’s non-Jewish girlfriend, Tegan, open him up to new ways of thinking. Then she shows him the house and tells him the last secret: Abomination is a six-year-old child who lives in the cellar.
