Did you know May is Jewish American Heritage Month?  This month, pick up one of these books featuring Jewish American teens.

Queen of Secrets by Jenny Meyerhoff
Fifteen-year-old Essie Green, an orphan who has been raised by her secular Jewish grandparents in Michigan, experiences conflicting loyalties and confusing emotions when her aunt, uncle, and cousin move back from New York, and her very religious cousin tries to fit in with the other football players at Essie’s high school, one of whom is Essie’s popular new boyfriend.
   
Things a Brother Knows by Dana Reinhardt
Although they have never gotten along well, seventeen-year-old Levi follows his older brother Boaz, an ex-Marine, on a walking trip from Boston to Washington, D.C. in hopes of learning why Boaz is completely withdrawn.
   
Little Miss Red by Robin Palmer
Sixteen-year-old Sophie’s dream of meeting her soul mate during spring break while visiting her grandmother in Florida seems to have come true, but she must determine if Jack is really the romantic hero he seems to be, or if ex-boyfriend Michael could be.
   
Goy Crazy by Melissa Schorr
Positive that her parents will disapprove of the boy she likes because he’s not Jewish, high school sophomore Rachel Lowenstein hides her involvement with him; and, while trying to fit in with a different crowd, she hides some things from herself.
