Written in the first person narrative, it is the thoughts and feelings of a young girl as she grows up, caught between her parent's Communism and her own love of Judaism. An interesting look at the 1930s and 1940s as well as of the religious Jewish life. A must read for anyone who is a fan of Chaim Potok or Jewish fiction.
