Publisher Comments:

andlt;iandgt;andlt;bigandgt;I put my fingers up to my throat and touched the pointy Star of David, my grandmother's necklace, a delicate chain made up of countless tiny links. If I wear this, will people think I am Jewish?andlt;/bigandgt;andlt;/iandgt; andlt;BRandgt; andlt;BRandgt; andlt;iandgt;andlt;bigandgt;Is that what I want to be? andlt;BRandgt; andlt;/bigandgt;andlt;/iandgt; andlt;BRandgt; andlt;BRandgt; Seventh-grader Caroline Weeks has a Jewish mom and a non-Jewish dad. When Caroline's nana dies around the same time that Caroline's best friend, Rachel, is having her bat mitzvah, Caroline starts to become more interested in her Jewish identity.

Synopsis:

Caroline's mom is Jewish, her dad isn't, and Caroline has never really thought of herself as any religion. But when her nana dies and leaves Caroline a Star of David necklace, Caroline begins to wonder about her heritage. If she starts going to synagogue, won't that upset her dad? Should she have a Bat Mitzvah like her best friend, Rachel? Does Caroline want to be Jewish? The more she thinks about it, the more questions she has.

Like "Are You There, God? It's Me, Margaret," this thoughtful and relevant novel traces one girl's journey toward discovering who she is and where she fits in.
