Book post – Strange Relations by Sonia Levitin

Who could pass up an opportunity to spend the summer in Hawaii? Not Marne, who is very much looking forward to sun, sand and boys. But the summer doesn’t quite turn out as she expects. Aunt Chaya and her husband are Hasidic Jews, and Marne finds herself immersed in a whole new world. Marne’s secular Jewish upbringing hasn’t prepared her for the rules and customs that surround her in her temporary home.

Pick this up if you liked All-of-a-Kind Family by Sydney Taylor or Never Mind the Goldbergs by Matthue Roth.
