Note: 
Like Margaret in Are You There, God? It's Me, Margaret, she questions. Like Heather in What Happened to Heather Hopkowitz, she searches for religious identity. Eleven year old Justine, a middle child, is upset with her socially insecure, twice-a-year Jewish family and is drawn to a friend's Catholicism. Her closet secrets are funny and also poignant, as is her search for a comfortable place within her family and for meaning within Judaism. Many Jewish children will feel an affinity with this lovable character.
