Rifka is a 12 year old girl, fleeing from Russia to go to America where 3 of her older brothers await. Rifka goes through many challenges on her journey, from embaressing checks by doctors, to having to leave her family and go to Belgium for her ringworm to cure. She befriends a teenage boy when on a ship to Ellis Island and he gets thrown off the ship in a terrible storm. It is deffinitly not an easy travel to America but it is worth it when she finally makes it. Letters From Rifka would be suitable for ages 9-13. I am 13 myself and enjoyed it very much. I highly recommend this book to everyone who finds it :)

    BOARING!!!!!!!!

    I think 'Letters from Rifka' is a very boaring book.In this book, a girl named Rifka is trying to sneek out of her country and go to America.On her journey, she takes a train and ends up getting ringworm from a girl on the train.Then she can't go to America because she gets the ringworm and it is a deathy sickness and so she can't leave the county.In the end,this book doesn't have enough of a good setting or plot to intrest me to read another book about this subject!!But,some good book I do enjoy are the BEST!!
