Review quote

"Alyssa struggles with the need to examine personal priorities and commitments. Guided by Jewish precepts, she is able to make some serious decisions. The suburban middle-class setting provides a sturdy anchor for this story. Rabbi Pearlman is exemplary; he works well with teens and is able to empathize and discuss problems with them in a realistic yet good-humored manner. . . . . Alyssa is a wholesome teen who deals with her problems in a mature and thoughtful manner. The fact that the demands on Alyssa are placed within a Jewish context will not limit general reader interest. Touches of humor throughout provide a nice counterpoint to the realistic problems."--School Library Journal"--School Library Journal "School Library Journal "
