Rebecca Rubin is growing up in the bustling city of New York in 1914. She dreams of being a star on the silver screen, and she can’t wait to sing onstage at school. Then her cousin Ana, from Russia, is assigned to sing with her, and Rebecca panics—what if Ana’s broken English ruins the show? Then, being included in a special plan fills Rebecca with joy—and an act of kindness teaches her the true meaning of the holiday season.
This first volume of Rebecca’s classic stories shows how Rebecca begins to discover her talents. 208 pages. Paperback. Author: Jacqueline Dembar Greene. Ages 8+
