Synopsis:

I saved my brother from the soldiers,
but the princess says he is hers now.
Abba and Ima will never trust me again.

In ancient Egypt, there lives a girl named Almah who will do anything to ensure the safety of her baby brother, Mosis.

She will leave her enslaved family and assume the role of Egyptian princess. She will change her identity if it means winning health and freedom for her brother.

Mosis, however, does not feel completely free. His identity has been changed against his will, and he longs to find himself. And when he does, he will do anything in his power to see that justice is served.

Synopsis:

I saved my brother from the soldiers, but the princess says he is hers now. Abba and Ima will never trust me again.

Over three thousand years ago in ancient Egypt, there lived a girl, Almah, who adored her baby brother, Mosis. She would do virtually anything to ensure his safety and happiness, even if it meant shunning their birthparents…but now Mosis will not be satisfied until he knows who he truly is.Award-winning author Julius Lester imagines Mosis as a brother, a son, an adoptee, and ultimately, as a young man who must make sense of his own unique identity.

About the Author

Julius Lester is the son of a Methodist minister and grew up listening to his father's sermons at weekly services. As an adult he converted to Judaism, about which he wrote in his memoir, Lovesong: Becoming a Jew. Mr. Lester has felt compelled to write about the Moses story for decades, and in creating the character of Almah he found his way to do so.

Mr. Lester is the author of more than twenty books, including Newbery Honor book To Be a Star, which he compiled and which was illustrated by Tom Feelings, and the Caldecott Honor book John Henry, illustrated by Jerry Pinkney. Mr. Lester teaches in the Judaic studies, English, and history departments at the University of Massachusetts at Amherst.
