NEW RELEASE! More Than Meets the Eye

May 26, 2014

C368Michoel Lederman would be the first to tell you that it’s not easy having a special-needs sibling. Why does everything have to always revolve around Rikki and her cerebral palsy? To have to move with his family away from all his friends, his school, his pet parrot, and all that’s familiar to him, to faraway America, all because of Rikki and her special needs, is not an easy concession for a twelve-year-old to have to make.

Actually, moving to another place because of a situation that’s not in your control is not an easy concession for anyone, of any age, to have to make. One of my friends was forced to move with her husband and family from Eretz Yisrael to America due to family circumstances—and boy did she take it hard! While, as a wife and mother, she couldn’t exactly sit in her house and mope all day, it did take her a good few months to come to terms with the move, and until she did, there was many a day when she had to force herself to smile in spite of the bleakness she was feeling.

So when things don’t exactly go smoothly for Michoel in his new home…well, you can’t really blame him for being grumpy and out-of-sorts, can you?

But then a baffling mystery begins to rear its head, with implications that are very serious indeed… And before he knows it, Michoel finds himself knee-deep among cops and robbers that aren’t part of a game at all, but are quite true-to-life indeed!

For the adventure-loving tween (especially boys!) in your life who can also appreciate a deep message or two—this is a novel that will send chills and thrills down your spine! Join Michoel and his buddies in their fast-paced and frightening detective work…and see where it will lead everyone…

NEW RELEASE! Behind the Scenes

May 23, 2014

L666You know the talented, popular girl in your class who was friends with everyone, was involved in every high school activity, and was beloved by the school staff, to boot? Not the kind of person who leaves an easy act for anyone to follow.

Well, what happens when Miss Popular has an older brother she’s close to, who’s a catch of a boy, and who just happens to be in shidduchim? It would follow naturally for her to try and seek out for him a girl just like herself, right? A girl she can be friends with, a girl she can be proud to call her sister-in-law.

But that’s not exactly what happens In Behind the Scenes. Simi Ostfeld is outgoing and popular, a real social butterfly; the girl her brother marries is the exact opposite. And while Simi wants to see the good in her new sister-in-law, and even tries to do so, when someone’s personality clashes so strongly with your own, finding the positive attributes in the other person can truly be an arduous task…

But let’s not forget that most streets go two ways. For all the great things Simi has going for her, her family has a background, too—quite an eventful one, at that—and Menuchi, her sister-in-law, has to come to terms with that as well…

There’s lots of heated emotion and tough family dynamics roiling in this new novel. Come and take a peek into the lives of some fascinating characters and their equally intriguing lives…
