This novel tells the story of three childhood girlfriends and their lives before, mostly during, and after their conscription to the Israeli army which brutalizes and changes them. It is well-written and innovative in its more surreal parts. However, the book is entirely from the point of view of the Israeli military and the characters are inward, thinking only of themselves and damaged by their experiences and the political context in which they live. The reader doesn't really care about them in the end. Boianjiu is a precocious author (this book was written when she was in her early 20s), but her talent is squandered here.

Explosive debut novel in stories that follow three young women who serve in the Israeli army
