Vaclav and Lena

by Haley Tanner

An engrossing story of two Russian Jewish immigrant children growing up in Brooklyn. The childish point of view makes the story both funny and moving and relieves the desperate sadness that lurks below the surface. A tale of secrets, friendship and love - I didn't want it to end!
