Note: 
A notable author returns to a character whose experiences in France during the Holocaust she portrayed in A Pocket Full of Seeds. Here, the orphaned teenager, Nicole, arrives in New York to begin a new life. It is a bittersweet one because for all of the amazing new things she discovers, like new friends, banana splits, and high heel shoes, her family's tragic fate is never out of her mind and it hurts her to feel that Americans simply aren't interested. Written in a concise, economical style, the novel shows Nicole's gradual adjustment to America and her growth as a young woman. Filled with humor, pathos, and the author's admiration for the woman on whom Nicole's character is based, it is a story that young teenage girls will take to their hearts.
