Libby Ross discovered Shabbat in an ice cream store.
And that was just the beginning.
Between her family’s recent move, her mother’s fixation with her career, and her sister’s wild new friends, Libby is having a miserable summer.
Then she meets outgoing Rebecca Klein, an observant Jewish girl from the neighborhood. Libby experiences the ethereal beauty of her first Shabbos, and embarks upon a powerful journey into a whole new world.
But her mother is bewildered by her new ideas, her father is furious and the rest of the family thinks she’s really weird.
Will the candlelight of Libby’s flickering flames give her the strength she needs to forge a new path for herself?
Exciting and thought-provoking, this is a powerful story about family and tradition, and a young girl’s struggle to find herself.
