Fascinating story about the Russian pograms, which is difficult to find in juvenile literature. Story is well told in a compelling, believable way. Love the connection between generations. However, wish the author had not succumbed to current trends of including four letter words in modern kids' speech. Several instances of "d***" and a few other milder explicatives which are not necessary for the storyline. Hence, only 3 out of 5 stars.
