Baltimore high school student Isabel Reed was so moved after reading our book that she reached out to ask to interview some of our authors in the hope of publishing an article of interest for her city's local Jewish community paper. Just published this week, the result is a beautifully crafted and competently portrayed piece of journalism. You can read it right here. In earlier personal correspondence, Rita Benn asked Isabel what in the book specifically resonated for her and what she thought would be most important for young people her age to take away from our stories. She shared these three reflections as the most compelling: that love between parents and children prevails in spite of difficult family relationships and histories of trauma, that forgiveness is possible, and, that events and family issues may appear to be 'black and white' but in reality are much more 'grey' and complex. We are beyond thrilled that our book held so much meaning for Isabel, and grateful for her insight into themes we might emphasize when meeting with high school age students.
