I liked this book!

Review by Molly

This book was full of surprises and kept me really engaged. The Jewish parts of this book were really god, and I thought that it was a really cool perspective on the traditional story.

Sad story turns out happy

Review by ElishevaLOVE

Interesting take on the story of Esther and Purim. It took about a third of the book to get me hooked. The twist at the end was exciting - I knew it!

Loved it!

Review by samhugo2012

I listened to this book on the PJ Our Way app and my whole family loved it. It was really unique and we couldn't wait to go on car rides to listen to what happened next. It was great to read about another time in Jewish history and what it was like to live then.

Review by Beautiful14

My mom's name is Esther, so my older sister and I wanted to get it, we read this book and absolutely loved it. Very nice storyline about an orphan girl who ends up a servant in Queen Esther's Court!
