But Ethan never wanted Team USA to select him for the summer Maccabiah games in Israel. Now, Ethan’s forced to trade a lazy July and angry girlfriend, for a shabby ice rink in Middle-East no-man’s land and a maniacal coach programmed for victory at all costs. And sharing a cramped apartment with a gritty Israeli family is anything but five-star. Ethan just wants to be done with this tournament and reclaim his snobby social scene in Chicago.But everything changes when Ethan’s upper-crust birthright battles a rugged week of Israeli border town hardship. Suddenly, Ethan’s stressing over his cushy hockey scholarship, while his new Israeli peers face three-year stints defending the Jewish State. And when Ethan catches the eye of this sabra terror survivor with shocking ties to Chicago, his life’s about to change forever, as he’s forced to decide between a dreamy, college free-ride, or the ultimate, Jewish line change.WINNER OF WRITERS TYPE FIRST PLACE FICTION, DECEMBER, 2012
