Gr. 9-12. Elli Friedman's bond with her mother is as close as when they protected each other in Auschwitz and survived the refugee camps. Now they move in with family in Brooklyn, and Elli slowly finds friends, love, and work, always sustained by her Orthodox Judaism. There's too much of the daily detail for many readers, but Elli's "greenhorn" mistakes are funny, and her romance with Alex is bittersweet--he needs her to be a helpless immigrant; but she wants to make her own way as a teacher. Most powerful is her survivor experience, told with terse understatement in the present-tense narrative. Haunted by horror, guilt, and grief, she is shocked to find prejudice in America; even Jews don't want to know about the Holocaust, so she must hide the number tattooed on her arm. Hazel Rochman
