Note: 
In this off-beat novel, 12 year old Mina believes that she and her family are reincarnations of Abe Lincoln's family. Her mission is to keep them from the fates of the Lincolns which provides some improbable but funny plot elements. The story is set during the Civil Rights era. Mina and her idealistic and rather naive father become involved with M.L. King's campaign in Chicago, introducing a new theme, a new group of characters, and an historical perspective to what was at first a story about the dynamics of an intermarried family. The Jewish content is slight.
