"Brings to life a not too distant history of immigration to Ellis Island. When it's time for nine-year-old Gittel and her mother to leave their homeland behind and go to America for the promise of a new life, a health inspection stops any chance of Gittel's mother joining her daughter on the voyage. Knowing she may never see her mother again, Gittel must find the courage within herself to leave her family behind"-- Provided by publisher. Loosely based on true stories told to the author by her grandmother and aunt about their voyage to America. 2020 Sydney Taylor Book Award for Picture Books.
