"Frustrated, lonely 17-year-old Nofar has spent an uneventful summer serving ice-cream to indifferent customers. She extends her break moping about her drab life, unwittingly irritating the bitter ex-reality TV star Avishai Milner who is waiting to be served. When Nofar corrects his language after he complains about his wait, he insults and humiliates her. Deeply offended, Nofar rushes out to the backyard, and Avishai - who is still waiting for his change - chases after her. 'Leave me alone!' she cries with all of her accumulated rage and hurt. Her screams quickly draw a crowd to the scene, and to her surprise everyone is convinced that Avishai tried to sexually assault her. Now, for the first time in her life, Nofar finds herself the centre of attention. She is lavished with support from the community and the media, who rally round her as the victim of a scandalous attempted assault. Nofar, giddy with newfound power and acceptance, finds that lies slip easily from her tongue, trapping her in a moral dilemma with devastating consequences."--Publisher's description.… (més)

I'm just going to start off right away that I couldn't get into this one, so I didn't finish it. It wasn't worth trying to push through.

I read the first few chapters, but I couldn't make myself go any further. It felt like a chore

The book does seem interesting; a 17-year-old ice cream scooper has a run-in with a disgruntled, washed-up star and allows rumors of an attempted sexual assault to bloom. But there was just something about the story that didn't pull me in or make me care to know what happens next.

One thing that bugged me about this book was that there was little dialogue to move the story on and instead we're given summary recaps of characters that played a part in Nofar's life. It was more telling the story than showing it in my opinion.. there was no passion in the narration.

With my new resolution to DNF books that I just can't get into, this sadly had to be the first one.

However, thanks NetGalley for letting me (try to) read an advanced copy of this book and give my honest review. ( )

This was a powerful book. I've read her book "Waking Lions" and am so impressed with her skills. Gundar-Goshen is especially deft at communicating human nature. Her understanding of the dynamics involved in relationships within families and couples resonates with honesty. I appreciated how quickly the action unfolded in the book. It was a bit odd to have the secondary story strand about Raymonde's lies, but I suppose it added depth to the understanding of living a lie. The most powerful part of reading Gundar-Goshen's novels is her incredibly gift for writing. Every page is filled with exquisite descriptions:
p. 10 "...she had a chance to begin everything anew, and there was no better place for it than the ice-cream parlor, that wonderland of flavors and colors, as if someone had managed to trap a rainbow, attach a door at the front and a cash register at the back, and place it on a street corner." I suppose some credit must go to the translator Sondra Silverston because the language used to tell this story is so achingly beautiful. ( )

Il mondo è pieno di bugiardi, è la tesi di questo libro, ma non tutte le bugie sono innocue. Alcune fanno male a che ne è vittima e anche a chi le ha raccontate. Il racconto parte da una bugia di un’adolescente e ne segue le conseguenze, ma soprattutto indaga la psicologia adolescenziale. Lo fa con acutezza, probabilmente derivata anche dall’esperienza professionale dell’autrice. Il risultato è un libro originale che ha però il difetto di trascinare la storia un po’ troppo per le lunghe. ( )

Mitteilung vom Schweizer Verlag Kein & Aber: 'In der Tat unterscheiden sich die internationalen Ausgaben dieses Romans hinsichtlich ihrer Enden. Während die deutsche Ausgabe (und die meisten anderen auch) dem hebräischen Original folgt, haben sich der britische und der amerikanische Verlag mit dem Einverständnis der Autorin dazu entschlossen, das letzte Kapitel zu streichen.'
