I liked this book because it took place in modern time. I could understand what was going on with Caroline better because I could relate to it. My favorite part of the book was the sleepover because I could really understand and relate to what was going on and why the girls wanted to go and didn’t want to go.
I would recommend this book because it helps you understand how to stick up for someone and how to be yourself which are all very important in life. Also, it was a really quick read.

Poem for The Truth About My Bat Mitzvah
I know the end is very near.
I will miss Caroline, who I hold so dear,
I shall leave behind something so she knows I’m not far.
A very special necklace that holds a Jewish Star.
This necklace will link her to my past.
And leave her with new memories that I hope will last.
More than Chinese food dinners, smell of perfume and watching me put on my face.
But learning about her heritage and my past is what I hope she does embrace.
