Sixteen year old Simone finds out one night that her birth mother would like to meet her. Eventually, she starts building a relationship with Rivka, and learns about her birth family that comes from a Hasidic community. The story is interesting with well-developed characters, but there are a lot of things that don’t make much sense in this book. For example, Simone’s parents seem to have been in close contact with Rivka. Her parents want Rivka and Simone to have a relationship. Yet they never gave Simone any information about Rivka when she was growing up. At the beginning of the book Simone has four close friends, but then two of them just completely disappear from the book. That seems like a weird omission, especially considering one of the themes of the book is that friends can become your family and the importance of community.
