Herbie is about to enter his senior year of high school and his days are packed with football, cross-country, and the pursuit of a potential girlfriend. Herbie is nothing short of an exceptional teenager, but he is also a prime conduit for ghostly energy. And Herbie's brother, who died ten years ago, is desperately trying to make contact. His brother Frank is a soul trapped without a body, and Herbie may be Frank's only way to get free. Frank has been trying to talk to Herbie for years-watching, waiting, reaching out to Herbie in his dreams. Finally, he is moving closer to meaningful contact. At long last, Herbie is becoming aware of his brother's presence.
Taher Dajani remembers playing soccer with his neighborhood friends in his idyllic city of Jaffa, Palestine. But on April 24, 1948, when Taher was fourteen, his carefree lifestyle came to an abrupt end. His family, with little money and few possessions, escaped the city by sea in a crowded fishing trawler as Zionist militia encircled Jaffa. Taher's father believed the family was in danger, so overnight they became refugees. The family took refuge in Syria and later in Libya, which enabled them to rebuild their lives. They experienced grief at leaving a place they loved and felt a great sense of loss and displacement, but with perseverance the Dajanis began anew.
"From Palestine to America" describes the family's experiences and their determination. Taher Dajani writes this memoir about his new life after leaving his beloved Jaffa-from his days as a college student in Chicago to his work with the central bank in Libya-and his position with the International Monetary Fund in Washington DC. Even though it has been sixty years since the Dajani family were forced to flee Palestine, they remember their heritage and roots, and Jaffa, Palestine, will forever be in their hearts.
