“This book is a biography about someone who was close to my mother. This person was named Omer Rubin. In a terrible and horrifying experience sailing, called Hurricane Fabian, Omer and a couple of his pals, all drowned. His father wrote an unforgettable book, which takes you through all the experiences Omer had as a child, a teenager, and an adult. This book especially caught my attention and intrigued me to keep on reading, because of my personal connection to it. My mom had the opportunity to translate this book from English to Hebrew, and she did with great pleasure. There are many pictures throughout the book, some of which my mom are in. The details written of the experiences he had are so well written, you can actually picture it in your mind. One experience Omer had with his parents, and my mom, was travelling on their little boat around Italy and Greece. I have to say, the most interesting thing that I learned about the book wasn't all of the memories Omer and his family and friends shared, it was the love his family and friends shared with him. His father is one of the most dedicated father's I have ever seen. I was even able to meet him and his wife four years ago in Israel. I had seen how much he misses him by the outstanding writing he put into this book. Everything he remembered was put into this book so that close family and friends would have the opportunity to remember in great detail how amazing Omer really was. I would definitely recommend this book to anyone who enjoys reading the cycle of life, the journeys this special person has gone through, and the love and care of his family and friends. This book takes you through his life's journeys, and his amazing personality that will stay in your heart forever.”

Wow Naomy! This seems like a really interesting book and I like how you chose a book that was close to your family's heart because it showed me that you could actually relate to it.
