Sarah Leah Jacobs is very upset with her older brother, Aaron. He doesn't have time to read a story with her, play a board game, even throw a ball back and forth. Aaron is so busy studying for his upcoming Bar Mitzvah, it's as if Sarah doesn't even exist.
Hmpf! Sarah will show him! First, she hangs a birdhouse near Aaron's bedroom window to attract a noisy woodpecker. Then, she encourages Mazel, the neighbor's puppy, to run off with her brother's ball and hide it far, far away. And that is only the beginning . . .
In this second volume in the delightfully humorous Growing Up Jewish With Sarah Leah Jacobs series, Sarah eventually comes to realize that although her brother is quickly becoming a young man, she will always be his little sister and hold a very special place in his heart.
