Fifteen-year-old Naka is an anomaly. An honor student in the northern Israeli town of Nahariya, she glides through Hebrew, English, and Arabic fluently, sings in a band, spends too much time on Facebook, and dreams of attending the army high school in preparation for military service. But she is not Israeli. She came on foot through Egypt with her family six years ago, a refugee from southern Sudan fleeing the largest genocide since the Holocaust. In 60 days, she faces deportation.
