Jake Harelson and the War for Hope, by Gal Rochwerger 


The story is a very gripping one for young adult readers, as Jake Harelson is a very sympathetic character for most children that age. Even adults find themselves identifying with him as he struggles with bullies and loneliness. It was also a very interesting take on the classic good v. evil, god v. satan tales.

However the English translation (it was originally published in Hebrew) left much to be desired. It made things a little difficult to read at times. The story was also very face-paced and Jake, the protagonist, went through things a little too easily. Perhaps with a bit of translation polishing and maybe a slower pace, Jake Harelson’s adventures could be the ride of a lifetime for even adult readers.
