Note: 
This outstanding novel for teens, written by a Sydney Taylor award winning author, has as its historical background the recent history of Argentinian Jews. This background give context to the emigration of an Argentinian Jewish family to New York. The protagonist is a teenage girl and it is through her astute perceptions that readers learn of her personal problems - a father in the throes of depression, above all - and her struggle to fit in at school. Historical details are flawlessly integrated into the fictional narrative and character development is especially strong.
