Book Description: The year is 1922. Brooklyn is crowded with Jewish immigrants and their American-born children. For Debbie, almost 14 it is a wonderful, exciting time in a fresh new land, seen through the eyes of a girl at the edge of womanhood. Change is everywhere-the country is changing and the old ways are changing. But Debbie is changing even faster. She faces all the challenges of growing up: new friends, first love, questions about the future. And she's learning just who Debbie Gold is. Debbie's story is like life itself-timeless, yet always new.
