Review by Kalanit

Penina Levine is a normal sixth grade girl, and what she really wants is to celebrate Hannukah her way- which basically includes potato pancakes, presents, and her best friend: Zozo. But things start getting messy when Penina finds out the Zozo is going to Aruba for the holiday. Plus, Penina also discovers that her favorite teacher, Mrs. Brown is taking a mysterious leave of absence. Is Penina's holiday ruined, or can she find a way to get back her special holiday?

It was a funny and very short read. It was really interesting when they create different types of latkes.
