œI don't want to live with strangers. I
want to stay right here, � I said.
œThink how sick you were all winter long, � Ruthi
answered. œThe country will make you stronger than
ever. You'll have new experiences and make new
friends. You may not even want to come home again.�

on the Lower East Side of New York. Her parents have
passed away, and her older sister, Ruthi, takes care of her.
Now Dossi is leaving the crowds, heat, and dirt of the city
to spend the summer in faraway Vermont where the air
is fresh and clean. Can a Jewish city girl learn how to pick
blackberries, milk cows, and, most challenging of all, make
friends with the Meade sisters?
