Think of a broiling hot summer's day. The sun's rays seem to melt concrete beneath your feet. The air almost shimmers with heat. Now think of a tall, shiny, crystal-like glass. The gentle, relaxing sound of liquid tinkling down upon ice. The delicious, sweet and slightly tart taste of lemonade. Ahhh! Welcome to Libby Lazewnik's "The Lemonade Lesson and Other Stories". You know what you'll find inside. You'll find interesting stories, exciting stories, funny stories. Stories that will pull at your heart. Others that will make you think, or laugh, or cry. You'll meet David, whose upcoming Bar Mitzvah will be just like his friends' - with one very big difference. Tova, who lies during lunch and learns that the aftertaste of falsehood lasts a long, long time. And Yaffa, whose letter to her friend was one that was never written. Sit back and savor it. As you would savor that cool, refreshing cup of lemonade. Ahhh!
