All she needs now are some patients! When her dad stubs his toe and her mum has a headache, Clementine is on hand – she even bandages the dog! But when there’s a real emergency and her little brother Tommy gets stuck up a tree, “Nurse Clementine” comes into her own.
Sixteen-year-old Molly Fraser works as a nurse with Florence Nightingale during the Crimean War to earn a salary to help her family survive in nineteenth-century England.
Seventeen-year-old Tal Levine of Jerusalem, despondent over the ongoing Arab-Israeli conflict, puts her hopes for peace in a bottle and asks her brother, a military nurse in the Gaza Strip, to toss it into the sea, leading ultimately to friendship and understanding.
