Her loving parents, both fervent radicals, fill her with the fiercely bright hope of a new and better world. But as the deprivations of war and depression take a ruthless toll, Davita unexpectedly turns to the Jewish faith that her mother had long ago abandoned, finding there both a solace for her questioning inner pain and a test of her budding spirit of independence.

  1. I would recommend the book Davita’s. This book is amazing, and it gives you an amazing insight on what really happened during the war. The book is about a little girl named Ilana Davita who loses her dad and uncle to war and has to grow up is a world of inequality. Ilana is strong minded and extremely smart, even when she loses the people she loves she handles it. The book goes through Ilana’s life in America with just her and her mother until her mother remarries. She then had to learn how to live her new life with new people at a new school but through all her struggles she comes out in the end. Overall this book is inspiring and shows you that no matter what you are going through, you can always come out strong in the end. I would like to recommend this book to
