Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Lois Rubin Gross
Rebecca Rubin, the Lower East Side American Girl, is back in this story about family, friendships, and pranks gone awry. The Rubin family has new neighbors in their apartment house. The Brodskys have moved to a larger, sunnier apartment because Mrs. Brodsky is losing her sight due to a virulent eye disease called trachoma. Mr. Brodsky works multiple jobs to pay the rent, so the couple is happy to have eleven year old Rebecca baby sit their infant daughter, Nora. However, on an excursion to the park, Rebecca suspects that the child has been switched for the look-alike sister of her new Italian friend, Francesca. Riddled with guilt, Rebecca confides her problem to her mother who brushes her worries aside. However, Rebecca is intent on reclaiming Nora and stumbles on a real kidnap plan in the process. Even though Rebecca puts herself in significant danger to turn the kidnappers over to the police, her family celebrates her heroism with a party in their Sukkah. As in other Rebecca Rubin stories, her family seems better off than their tenement neighbors do and relatively homogenized in their Jewish practice. The fact that the story occurs in the fall and culminates in the celebration of Sukkot, a harvest festival, is entirely incidental to the story and seems tacked on to the tale of Rebecca's sleuthing. The Rubin's lack of real concern over Rebecca's close call with abduction seems improbable. The basic story of the baby switch is engaging and should entertain young readers, but it might be best used as an object lesson in responsibility and "stranger danger" for contemporary readers.

    Short book

    I think this book was short but included a lot of detail. If i were you i would probubly buy it and read it in one day. I usually get a 100% on the ar test if you know what that is, but then i am in gifted education and the smartest kid in 4th grade and read 300 page books.
