About This Book

While Ruth goes to school and eagerly learns English on Manhattan's Lower East Side, Mama works painfully long hours, speaks only Yiddish, and dresses like a greenhorn. But when Mama is arrested for union activities, Ruth must decide whether it is her beautiful American teacher or her embarrassing mother who truly matters to her.
