    Have just begun reading it and find the beginning intriguing. I love mysteries and suspense like this. what is on the fifth page? How long will you keep us guessing? This looks like being a novel written for older children but appropriate for all ages.

    I was enthralled by this book. Ruth writes in a way that i can " feel " at though i am a part book. The book also reminded me of a time where there was no email or sms. That seems like a real long time ago. Another world. Well Done Ruth i enjoyed the book Thank Nicole Heiman

    Good old unreliable fax!

    Enjoyed this beginning. It took no time to read which, to me, is always a good sign that the narrative has grabbed me. Congrats!!

    So far, I'm waiting for something to happen

    I am reading the first 80 pages available, but must admit to a slow start. I'm on page 24 and the most Becky (main character?) has done is put in her contact lenses and study for a history test. For a young adult/juvenile book, several pages devoted to how a fax machine works is a bit of an attention-stall. Tension was nicely built up in the prologue.

    Slow moving start

    Yellow_star-c09e82bff6cf53398cc23ca904d3855a Yellow_star-c09e82bff6cf53398cc23ca904d3855a Yellow_star-c09e82bff6cf53398cc23ca904d3855a Empty_star-e60c0e83933eadeb47c8849bb808f2e6 Empty_star-e60c0e83933eadeb47c8849bb808f2e6

    Slow moving to begin with, not to say it doesn't pick up as the book progresses'.It all depends on what age group this is aimed at.I would think young adults would prefer something a little more fast paced.

    This story moved me. I felt for the little boy who was accused of murder but was innocent. Ruth writes in a way that i felt that i was a part of the story. I was completely absorbed by the story & relieved when it was all over. Thanks Ruth I enjoyed the book Regards Nicole

    I could hardly put the book down. A lot of what Ruth talks about in the book is hardly known about in " white " circles. Some of it is spoken about but not enough. I think that books like this that talk about our history of our country need to be told so that the story never dies & history never given the opportunity to repeat it self. I live in SA. I certainly think more SA need to read the book to get a better perspective of where the country has been. Well done Ruth on a book that should have been written twenty years ago. Although during that time the book would never have been published. Thanks for a great interesting book Nicole Heiman

    I really enjoyed these stories. These are stories that make me want to learn more about being jewish. They are like stories you bobbe would tell you. I can relate better due to my religion thanks to these books. Thanks Ruth for a bunch of great stories

    Only enough to give a faint idea of the story

    Yellow_star-c09e82bff6cf53398cc23ca904d3855a Yellow_star-c09e82bff6cf53398cc23ca904d3855a Yellow_star-c09e82bff6cf53398cc23ca904d3855a Empty_star-e60c0e83933eadeb47c8849bb808f2e6 Empty_star-e60c0e83933eadeb47c8849bb808f2e6

    The offering was short - not so many words on a page. Well written, interesting, certainly a taster that would make me want to read more.
