Rivka's Way

(3) 4-6 In eighteenth-century Prague, fifteen-year-old Rivka is about to be betrothed, but she is frustrated by the strict parameters of life in the centuries-old Jewish ghetto. She disguises herself as a boy and leaves the enclave, reveling in the attendant freedom of movement and becoming friends with a Christian boy. The novel's strengths lie in the strong, sympathetic protagonist and the intriguing setting.
