I could not tear myself away from this book it is an amazing story! it has a twist of romance, theater, friendship and so much more!
It was DEFINITELY a smart decision to get this book!!!!
This is by far the best book I've gotten from PJ Our Way! It made me think about music in a whole new way, I love this story because it has so many relatable characters and was very entertaining, but teaches about very important things in history. Broken Strings takes place after the attacks of 9/11, Zayde, Shirli's grandfather lived through the Holocaust, and Shirli is in the school’s production of Fiddler on The Roof. I am recommending this to all of my friends!
I would give this book a million stars if I could! As a person who has always loved musical theater (especially Fiddler on the Roof), it was really touching! The history this book teaches is very remarkable. If you're looking for a new book to read, you should totally pick this one!
It was so good you should really get this book.
This book remind us that we are all humans and should be treated the same way as one another. That we are all special, and need to let go of the past and move on. This book also talks about how music can change your life-how you can hear or see things differently-and how we are all one team. Shirli's, Mom, Dad, and brother would help "a team player" by getting groceries and clean up the house a little bit, even when they visit, to make their Zayde happy, how Natasha would get Ben to sit at there table or talk with Shirli, even when when Mindi got a cold, Shirli was there telling her about teas and medicines.
This is a historical book with a normal teenage girl's life mixed into it. This book is not boring. It might be historical, but it is interesting and heartfelt. This book could actually be someones' story.
I recommend it. ESPECIALLY if you like Geronimo or Thea Stilton, The Thea sisters, or/and Tamora Pierce books. This is the best Jewish history book I have ever read, By Far.
