Reviews
"Strong first-person narration thoughtfully explores experiences of antisemitism and prejudice...Levy presents a realistic, gutsy, problemsolving youth navigating difficult situations with the love and support of community, friends, and family."-- "Booklist"
"Both Jew-ish and non-Jew-ish read-ers will be inspired by Elsie's brav-ery while learn-ing about Jew-ish hol-i-days and com-mu-ni-ty sup-port. This book would make a per-fect gift for a young Jew-ish [reader]."-- "Jewish Book Council"
"Allows readers to find the space to ask questions and have conversations about racism and antisemitism in society. Recommended."-- "CM: Canadian Review of Materials"
"Covers many social issues that young people need to read about...a good discussion for the reader and an adult."-- "Children's Literature"
