Publisher Comments:

SEWING! NO ONE could hate it more than Dina Kirk.

Endless tiny stitches, button holes, darts. Since she was tiny, shes worked in her familys dressmaking business, where the sewing machine is a cranky member of the family.

When 13-year-old Dina leaves her small town in Germany to join her uncles family in Brooklyn, she turns her back on sewing. Never again! But looking for a job leads her right back to the sewing machine. Why did she ever leave home? Here she is, still with a needle and thread—and homesick to boot.

She didnt know she could be this homesick, but she didnt know she could be so brave either, as she is standing up to an epidemic or a fire. She didnt know she could grow so close to her new family or to Johann, the young man from the tailors shop. And she didnt know that sewing would reveal her own wonderful talent—and her future.

In Dina, the beloved writer Patricia Reilly Giff has created one of her most engaging and vital heroines. Readers will enjoy seeing 1870s Brooklyn through Dinas eyes, and share her excitement as she discovers a new world.

From the Hardcover edition.
