Peace Train is a story about two Palestinians and one Israeli who become unlikely friends. After a life-shattering event happens, they decide to say, “No More!” These three unlikely heroes begin to create a Friendship Pod with their enemies, and the Pods soon spread throughout their countries, bringing peace when no one thought it was possible.
Sara Salinger is an average Israeli teen, and her lifestyle is typical of teens around the world. But when she turns sixteen, she spends an amazing—and life-changing—three weeks during the summer with fifteen other high schoolers at a peace camp in the United States. The caveat: half of the campers are native Palestinians and half are Israeli citizens.
We are supposed to hate each other. The sentiment runs through the minds of each camper.
However, Sara finds true friendship, true community and true love during that extraordinary three weeks. How does she take what she learned and share it with her friends and family back home? Can her thoughts of peace really change her world…and the world at large? After a devastating tragedy strikes her as an adult, what will her commitment to peace and understanding cost her?
An inspiring story of understanding humanity and finding peace in the midst of calamity, Peace Train, will leave you believing that there is hope for a better tomorrow.
Based on the book, Peace Train, A Love Story, written by Renée Mollan Masters.
