Note: 
Set among Orthodox Jews during the American Revolution, this story stars a girl with a gift for solving riddles and a knowledge of Gematria (the study of the numerical values of the Hebrew alphabet). Using her talents, she helps to save her family from the invading British. Readers unfamiliar with Hebrew and Yiddish phrases will find themselves continually flipping to the glossary. However, the soft-colored illustrations that depict colonial life such as characters’ clothing and the interiors of their house and store add to the enjoyable and informative story.
