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.
