In the summer of 1910, Dossi is surprised and terrified to discover that her sister is sending her to a Vermont farm on a charity-sponsored vacation. The landscape and the people of Vermont are very different from her urban Jewish tenement, but Dossi is enchanted by the big blue sky and the peaceful countryside. She longs to make Emma Meade, the brooding daughter of her Christian host family, her friend, and she fills a journal with her thoughts, fears, and impressions of a universe very different from her own. And soon Dossi begins to realize that, sometimes, worlds apart are not so far away from each other after all. 01-02 Young Hoosier Book Award Masterlist (Gr 4-6)Hurwitz, Johanna is the author of 'Faraway Summer' with ISBN 9780606178808 and ISBN 0606178805.
