Praise for The Length of a String

Sydney Taylor Honor Book, awarded by the Association of Jewish Libraries
Tablet Magazine
's Best Jewish Children's Books of 2018

"Told in two voices which Weissman weaves together like a double helix, this is a story of family ties, some of which are broken by war, some broken by choice, some broken by unanswered questions. But by the end, readers will see that love and faith--from strangers, from friends, and from long-gone ancestors--have the power to knit us together with strings that are so much stronger than genetics. I loved this sweet refuge of a book." --Kathi Appelt, Newbery Honor-winning author of The Underneath and The True Blue Scouts of Sugar Man Swamp

"You'll yearn with this wonderful heroine as she searches for long-ago Anna and her own hidden past. The characters are unforgettable, and the ending is entirely satisfying. A book readers will love; I know I did." --Patricia Reilly Giff, Newbery Honor-winning author of Lily's Crossing

"The Length of a String is a resounding continuum of connection and search for self. As universal as it is personal. A must read." --Rita Williams-Garcia, Newbery Honor-winning author of One Crazy Summer

"Weissman's newest adds to her oevre of middle-grade novels featuring smart kids learning life lessons." --Booklist

"Pair this with Lois Lowry's Number the Stars for Jewish historical fiction with heart. An excellent addition with strong curricular ties." --School Library Journal

"Both Anna and Imani are richly drawn characters, complex and sympathetic. . . . [A] moving, deftly plotted story." --Publishers Weekly

"The reader watches as [Imani] deepens her understanding of who she is and the world around her--page by page, emotion by emotion. . . . Highly recommended." --Jewish Book Council

Book Description

Imani is adopted, and she's ready to search for her birth parents. But when she discovers the diary her Jewish great-grandmother wrote chronicling her escape from Holocaust-era Europe, Imani begins to see family in a new way.
