Reviews
"This unusual, finely-crafted book meets the criteria for consideration for a Sydney Taylor Award. Its mix of historical fiction, biblical retelling, and adventure make it a rare find in the Jewish middle grade genre. It will enrich the story of Purim for those who know it, and serve as an intriguing introduction for those who don't."
--Sydney Taylor Shmooze
"...a complex and compelling story about hidden identity, Jewish survival, and female solidarity. There have been many literary retellings and new interpretations of Esther's story, but Pransky's version for young adults adds new dimensions to this rich narrative source... highly recommended."--Emily Schneider, Jewish Book Council
"This is a great addition to the Purim bookshelf, and an excellent book for middle readers who enjoy historical fiction."--Kathy Bloomfield, Association of Jewish Libraries President, Seal Beach, CA, USA
