9780140370898: Lydia, Queen of Palestine (Puffin Book)

"In her own words, Lydia is a 'terror.' She is also a survivor, escaping to Palestine from Romania during WWII to become a resident of a kibbutz. After reading her account, one might conclude that particular kibbutz was never again the same . . . Ingenious, self-confident,. energetic, and bright, Lydia is a force to be reckoned with--and a character no one can ignore."--The Horn Book.
