Editorial Reviews

"In this wry, wise, and thoroughly terrific memoir, Kaiser handles the kind of thorny identity politics that make lesser writers quail with a light, lovely and seemingly effortless touch -- and she's hilarious to boot."
—Rachel Shukert, author of Everything's Going to be Great

"Kaiser's descriptively compelling, sweetly sensual, coming-of-age story transcends religions and geography."
