Welcome to Moose Street
Lena Rosen is eleven years old, and her life is pretty typical. From babysitting her little sister to spending time with friends to sticking up for the class outcast to sneaking off to buy candy from the corner store, she is just like all of the other kids on her block. Except for one thing—she’s Jewish.
Lena’s family is the only one on all of Moose Street that isn’t Catholic or Protestant. “You’re the ones who killed Christ,” her classmates tell her. Lena knows that they’re wrong, but she can’t help feeling different.
Anne Mazer’s captivating novel of youth, difference, and acceptance is a must-read.
