The story of a young Hasidic Jewish girl, daughter of a Rabbi, who secretly reads secular books and longs to explore life outside her community. Later I learned the book is loosely based on the author‘s real life. Great book
This is one of those books where I was constantly switching back and forth between loving the main character and wanting to shake some sense into her. For the most part, she was a strong, competent character. But there were several times throughout the book she made decisions that went against everything she claimed to want for herself.
