" Enjoyable and informative. Some of the stories were quite moving and, b/c Goldin is a western MA writer, some of the people she interviewed, I know! Though it's written to the bat mitzvah girl, I can't see any 13 year old reading it unless it is assigned. " said.

" I thought this would mostly be a book about the bat mitzvah ceremony and preparations, but it had a lot of Jewish women's history in it, too. I found it in the Juvenile section, but it's perfect for an adult. The fictional account of a girl's bat mitzvah ceremony in the chapter 'What's Going On Up There' was especially powerful. " said.

"A very insightful and brief book that I would recommend for even the non-bat mitzvah and non-Jewish faith readers. A great deal of the book talks about women through history, and even how a few women still managed to start the ripples of change in society. These are only a few though, and are those who are believed/known to be Jew themselves. Despite that, it is still a great way to delve into the history. For young girls, these women provide role models they can learn about.
What wasn't about women's history was about the bat miztvah itself with multiple voices speaking of their experience. The author had included lady's who had theirs at various points in time since the first one. As well as some thoughts from her own daughter. It is interesting to read how each individual had their own touch to the celebration.
