Engaging and funny!

Review by Noa

Amy Finawitz is an amazing read about a teen girl growing up in New York City. Amy encounters many challenges through her journey of becoming a Jewish adult, many of which are very relatable. The story is engaging and funny, the characters well developed, and the NYC setting is perfect for the star.

I enjoyed but…

Review by SweetFlower8

It was a good book but I agree with others who say that Amy’s character didn’t really speak to them. Although certain things she said about Beryl pointed out to me how some Jews are misjudged for the way they show their respect for hashem. Overall I think it was a worthwhile read I just didn’t feel much of a connection. But if you like to watch things play out (how most children books work) then this is a good book for you.

Not great

Review by Duckie2011

This book was boring and not appropriate. Amy was not nice and the book said bad words.
