A look into the world of the Modern Orthodox and Hassidic Jews, with a special focus on the sharp differences between the two. Though predictable, it has a comedic storyline that makes it a fun and interesting read. The characters and the descriptions are well-written, making it all the worth while.

This book was not a "grab me and do not put me down book".However it gave some very interesting insights on how families view each other as well as the nuances in the Orthodox sect of Judaism. Not being Jewish I found the description of different traditions and values extremely interesting.
