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.

Review by Bizgirl

They don't have enough stars for me to tell you how good this book is!!!! BECAUSE IT'S SO AMAZING!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I recommend this book so much!!!!! I love how she faces danger, unfairness, slavery and at the end finds herself knowing all about her past. Truly the best book I have read in my life! (And I've read a LOT of books!) :O :O :)

Review by PJLibraryaccount

I love this book! As soon as they mentioned Lady Esther I was like "OMG! I know this story! It's one of my favorite books!" I was thinking of recommending this book to my friends. It took my about 5-7 hours to finish it. I am a fast reader. That's why l love PJ OUR WAY so much!

Great Book!

Review by Ilovepixie

This was a great book! I loved reading it and I would recommend it to anyone looking for a fun read with some historical fiction. This book is great for everyone, not just Jews. It's very interesting and told from the perspective of one of the queens handmaidens. I didn't even realize it was the story of Purim until the Author's Notes!
