The Chosen by Chaim Potok
FIRST PAPERBACK EDITION  FAWCETT CREST
Near perfect vintage reading copy, still appears new and unread. Back cover has a cut corner.
Out of a baseball game that nearly became a religious war, two Jewish boys become friends. Danny comes from the strict Hasidic sect that keeps him bound in centuries of orthodoxy. Reuven is brought up by a father patiently aware of the twentieth century. Everything tries to destroy their friendship, but they use honesty with each other as a shield and it proves an impenetrable protection.
