The year is 1897, and gifted violinist Reuven Bloom is fifteen years old. Life for the Jews in Russia is very hard. First Reuven’s best friend is captured to serve in the Tsar’s army, and then his parents and older sister are murdered. Reuven’s dreams of music must be set aside. Now he has only one goal: escape. With his baby sister strapped to his back, Reuven sets off toward an unknown freedom. His journey takes him first across Russia, and then ultimately to America.

About the Author:

Award-winning author Kathryn Lasky has written many fiction and nonfiction books for children, including the Guardians of Ga'Hoole series upon which the computer-animated Warner Brothers film "Legend of the Guardians: The Owls of Ga'Hoole," is based. Ms. Lasky is also the author of the Newbery Honor Book Sugaring Time. She lives in Cambridge, Massachusetts.

From School Library Journal:

Grade 5-9–Through rich prose filled with imagery, distinct characterization, and historical research, Lasky breathes life into the horrific history of anti-Semitism in Russia in the late-19th and early-20th centuries. At the start of the book, 15-year-old Reuven Bloom, a talented violinist, focuses on music and trying to balance his Talmudic studies, but the vicious activities of the Czar's army soon change his life. His best friend is kidnapped and taken to be a soldier. Soldiers murder his parents and older sister, and only Reuven and his baby sister survive. Circumstances make the teen courageous as he tries to escape the Cossacks and to find a cousin in Vilna who might help him and Rachel reach safety in the United States. She is taken to America when Reuven agrees to join the revolutionary movement and fight, and he joins her six years later. This reads like an adventure story, but the research at its foundation is clearly evident. Reuven was first introduced in Lasky's The Night Journey (Penguin, 1986), but this novel easily stands on its own. An excellent addition to any collection.–Renee Steinberg, formerly at Fieldstone Middle School, Montvale, NJ
