Sara's family isn't safe. In Russia in 1909, the country's leaders encourage soldiers and even neighbors to attack and exploit Jewish people—people like Sara and her family. They leave their home country for a new life in America, but will they find the peace they're looking for?
It's strange at first, and Sara wonders if she'll ever feel like she belongs in America. But as she learns English and makes friends at her new school, things begin to look up—until tragedy hits. Her family is grief-stricken. Sara must look within herself for the courage and determination to help her family move forward.
