From the Inside Flap
Fifteen-year-old Sarah, the daughter of Jewish immigrants, wants nothing more than to become an artist. But as she spreads her wings she must come to terms with the secrets that her family is only beginning to share with her.
Replete with historical details that vividly evoke Chicago in the 1890s, this moving coming-of-age story is set against the backdrop of a vibrant, turbulent city. Sarah moves between two very different worlds the colorful immigrant neighborhood surrounding Hull House and the sophisticated, elegant World's Columbian Exposition.
This novel eloquently captures the struggles of a young girl as she experiences the timeless emotions of friendship, family turmoil, loss and first love.
