I enjoyed reading this book, and i believe that young girls will too.I recommend this book to my students who want to learn about lithuania and how hannah came from that place with her younger sister and came to america.

The exciting story of Hannah's trip from Russia to America is told through her journal entries. The format, with lined pages, hand lettering, and Hannah's drawings and comments in the margins, is especially appealing.

This book is an illistrated journal of a girl immigrating with her friend to america. But many stops come up. Can they get past all of them?
