Overview

Chosen for inclusion in the reading list for the 2006 Manitoba Young Readers' Choice Award


It is 1957 and Alexandra’s immigrant family is living the North American dream. Her father is a respected doctor, and she has a warm circle of good friends from church, from girl guides, and from school. Perhaps her mother is nervous and a bit odd – she seems incapable of leaving the house alone – and there is never any talk of the life they left behind in Hungary, but every family has its quirks.

Alexandra’s world is turned upside down when she discovers a secret that her parents have kept. They are not Catholic, as Alexandra believes. They are Jewish. Alexandra’s view of her parents, of her friends, and of the society in which she lives is turned upside down by her discovery. Who is she and where does she really belong?

She began writing at a young age and showed an early passion for journalism – she interviewed teen movie stars Annette Funicello and Frankie Avalon for The Winnipeg Free Press when she herself was a teenager. Her first young adult novel, A Place Not Home, was a finalist for numerous literary awards across North America and was named to the New York Public Library’s annual Best Books for the Teen Age list. Her second novel, My Canary Yellow Star, was equally successful. Eva Wiseman is the mother of two grown children. She lives in Winnipeg with her husband.

A Jewish family, who settle in Winnipeg, keep their heritage hidden.I enjoyed the historical aspects as well as the references to locations in Winnipeg however, I found the story to be slow moving.
