The Chosen is not only a book that shows how two different kinds of kids can end up being friends but it also shows how someone can over come adversity just as the two characters Rueven and Danny had to overcome.

During a baseball game, Rueven Malter a regular active kid was hit in the eye with a baseball. He really thinks that he was targeted by the kid who was trying hit him, who happened to be Danny Sanders.Danny Sanders is part of the Hasid religion and Rueven was Jewish.
