When Mayim's mother takes a job in northern Israel, Mayim must leave her best friend and much-loved grandfather in Jerusalem. But she quickly makes new friends in Haifa--Chaim, the butcher, Mr. Saludi, the Palestinian vegetable seller, Mrs. Koslovsky, her neighbor, and a mysterious stray dog that lives down in the wadi. No one seems to know anything about the dog except that he is very old and has been making the rounds in town for a long time. Everyone has a special name for him--Baily, Laffah, Adel, Havi. Mayim calls him Knotty, but he comes to none of those names. }This book is a middle grade novel and is set in Israel in 1973, during the time of the Yom Kippur War. It tells the story of Mayim, a nine-year-old girl who struggles to find her voice during the terrors of the war. Mayim, whose father died in the Six Day War, seeks courage from her mother, her great aunt, the woman across the street, and the ancient stray dog. She finds instead that they need courage from her. }}
