Note: 
Thirteen year old Sierra Goodman's father has died and she looks to her idol, Abraham Lincoln, for a model of ways to cope. The author writes convincingly about being thirteen, and about Sierra's sorrow and anger at losing her father. Braiding together American history, Jewish and Cuban culture and family life, the story will hold the interests of readers. Although Sierra's family are peripherally Jewish, there is a positive feeling about her Jewish experiences with her father. The many children of mixed marriages will find positive identification with Judaism and Jewish family values here.
