Description
Winner of the National Jewish Book Award, "a triumphantly moving book."*
Hannah is tired of holiday gatherings-all her family ever talks about is the past. In fact, it seems to her that's what they do every Jewish holiday. But this year's Passover Seder will be different-Hannah will be mysteriously transported into the past . . . and only she knows the unspeakable horrors that await.
*"Kirkus Reviews," pointer review.
