The story of a lost dog, and the discovery of first love on the streets of Jerusalem are portrayed here with a gritty realism that is as fresh as it is compelling.

When awkward and painfully shy sixteen-year-old Assaf is asked to find the owner of a stray yellow lab, he begins a quest that will bring him into contact with street kids and criminals, and a talented young singer, Tamar, engaged on her own mission: to rescue a teenage drug addict.

A runaway bestseller in Israel, in the words of the Christian Science Monitor: “It’s time for Americans to fall in love with Someone to Run With.”

Praise for Someone to Run With

Someone to Run With reveals again that Grossman is one of contemporary literature’s most versatile and absorbing writers....A deceptively simple story that is another revelation of Grossman’s genius.”--San Francisco Chronicle

“Beautiful and arresting...Grossman has created a place of great dangers and improbable strokes of fortune, of compelling suspense and love’s labors gained.”--Los Angeles Times

“Passionate and heartfelt...a story that is at once universal and specific, a classical fable of love brought to contemporary Israel.”--Claire Messud, The New York Times Book Review
