Product description

Review

This painful, respectful story of redemption is well worth delving into Yiddish-laden prose. (Kirkus Reviews, starred review)

This thoughtful, disturbing, and insightful novel provides an insider's view of an insular society. (School Library Journal)

Emotionally riveting. . . The charm of Gittel's narration stems from her mix of respect for her community's traditions and the humor that arises from a child trying to make sense of her world. (Jennifer M. Brown, Shelf Awareness)

I couldn't put Hush down. Gripping, fascinating and poignant, the book is bravely written. ...An extremely well-crafted story that keeps you turning pages. (Teenreads.com)

She holds a master's degree in creative writing and has worked as a journalist for several international Orthodox newspapers. She lives in New York City.
