It’s the spring of 1944 and 15-year-olds Reuven Malter and Danny Saunders have lived five blocks apart all their lives. But they’ve never met, not until the day an accident during a softball game sparks an unlikely friendship. Set against the backdrop of WWII and the creation of the state of Israel, THE CHOSEN is a poignant novel about transformation and tradition, growing up and growing wise, and finding yourself --- even if that might mean leaving your community.
