From award-winning author Kathy Kacer - Two girls are coming of age, one in modern comfort, the other in the Warsaw Ghetto. With just three weeks to go before her Bat Mitzvah, Laura's rabbi assigns her a special project. She is given the journal of a girl her own age who was imprisoned in the Warsaw Ghetto during the time of the Holocaust and who never had a chance to celebrate her coming of age. Laura is to research young Sara Gittler's life and then share her Bat Mitzvah with her "twin" by speaking of her at the ceremony. Reluctant to undertake the project at first, Laura is gradually drawn into Sara's story of bravery and survival in the Warsaw Ghetto. As she reads Sara's journal entrie, which reveal both her disintegrating world and her willingness to fight the best she can, Laura comes to realize that in learning about Sara, she is also learning lessons she can apply to her own life. Like Laura, readers will be absorbed by Sara's diary, which brings to life the fear, confusion, and courage of a young girl living through a frightening and terrible time. Includes photographs, biographies of young heroes of the Warsaw Ghetto Uprising, and true accounts of "Twinning Ceremonies". Part of the Holocaust Remembrance Series for Young Readers.
