'Moss explains the Israeli-Palestinian conflict in clear and unbiased terms.'
Moss explains the plight of the Palestinians as Anna comes to understand it. After days stuck on the plane nearly starving in the intense desert heat, Anna gets to know one of the hijackers, a man not much older than she is. Anna asks him questions about why he’s there and develops empathy for the hijackers and an understanding that she’s being used as a pawn in a much larger fight. Though Anna is not Jewish, Moss explains the Israeli-Palestinian conflict in clear and unbiased terms, and the reader can feel Anna struggling to understand the pain and frustration felt on both sides.
