by Arnold I. (Lee) Stern, Sr.
A Jewish Teen in Brooklyn follows the memories of Frieda Stern, who grew up in a whirlwind of Hungarian dancing lessons, trips to the Chinese laundry, and other vividly described vignettes of daily life in Brooklyn at the turn of the last century. This series of remembrances stitches together a picture of family life in the tenements, teaching readers about Jewish observance and the value of the small things in life.
