Joshua is thirteen. He lives in the isolated town of Amarias. At the edge of the town is a high wall, guarded by soldiers. Joshua has been taught that The Wall is the only thing keeping him and his people safe. One day, Joshua stumbles across a tunnel which leads towards this forbidden territory. He's heard plenty of stories about the other side, but nothing has prepared him for what he finds...The Wall is a political fable in a setting which closely mirrors the West Bank. It is a novel about a boy, a settler child, discovering that his world may not be as it seems; that his people may be aggressors rather than victims; and that if he wants to honour his dead father, he must stand up and forge his own sense of right and wrong.
