About the Book:

A memoir about Rana's life and the lives of her people who are living under Occupation and Siege.

In Gaza I dare to dream is Rana's first book. It's a memoir about her life and the lives of her people who are living under Occupation and Siege. In Gaza, even the smallest goals people set for themselves can pose challenges, which thwart and dishearten. The harsh living conditions imposed by Occupation and its allies hinder the youth and put every obstacle in their way to crush their souls and ruin their lives.

What makesIn Gaza: I Dare to Dream unique, and why I find it so compelling, is that it is a wonderful exposition of feelings.

"Rana Shubair gives us an insider's view of her "beloved Gaza," the open-air prison where periodic Israeli assaults turn people into "numbers," and where daily life is at the mercy of a "power switch" going on and off (mostly off).

"In Gaza I Dare To Dream is a mesmerizing window into one of the greatest miracles in human history: Palestinian resilience. These dispossessed people endure the most severe Israeli racist oppression but do not give up.
