Reviews

Praise for Dreidels on the Brain

National Jewish Book Award Finalist

"A welcome addition to the canon of holiday stories."-
Booklist


"This fresh, fast-paced read is a must purchase for any middle school collection. . . . As an aspiring magician, Joel understands manipulating belief and often uses his magic as a metaphor. . . . Seriousness is artfully balanced with Joel's comedic explanations of Yiddish words, and his perception of Jewish traditions."-School Library Connection

"Relatable and humorous. . . . A coming-of-age novel steeped in tradition [that] will appeal to anyone who has felt different and those who believe-or want to believe-in miracles."-VOYA
