My Review

Where Do I Go is a fabulous follow up to Beverly Magid’s Sown in Tears. I enjoyed this one so much more. I loved the strength that Leah had and admired her. I found it intriguing getting a glimpse of what life was like for those living in that section of New York City in 1908. It must have been horrific for all, including children, during those times.

I highly recommend Where Do I Go. I just could not put it down until I was finished. I give it 5 plus stars.

I received this book from the author. This review is 100% my own honest opinion.
