WHAT IS THE STORY BEHIND the new family on Yoni Silverstein's block? Why did the Kleinbergs suddenly move to Riverdale, and —most mysterious of all — where is their father? Yoni and his friend Meir are determined to find out.
When Yoni discovers his father has taken smart, studious Chaim Kleinberg under his wing, he struggles to overcome his feelings of being an average, unexceptional middle child.
At the same time, Chaim, nearly crushed by the deep, dark secret weighing on him, must learn to move beyond his pain and sense of betrayal in order to restore his trust in others and rebuild his life.
New Family on the Block opens a window into the complex emotions and internal conflicts that lay behind our individual struggles — and the accompanying triumph we achieve upon successfully overcoming them.
