    Eliza Naumann, a seemingly unremarkable 9-year-old, expects never to fit into her gifted family: her autodidact father, Saul, absorbed in his study of Jewish mysticism; her brother, Aaron, the vessel of his father's spiritual ambitions; and her brilliant but distant lawyer-mom, Miriam. But when Eliza sweeps her school and district spelling bees in quick succession, Saul takes it as a sign that she is destined for greatness.

    "Ummm ya,.."
    Overall

    I rate this book one star, because I at least finished the book. However, I did set it down for about a month and a half before I picked it back up. Definitely not an ear turner. I couldn't rank it higher because I was annoyed by the author. I usually enjoy when the author reads their own words, but she gave zero personality to her words. It was like a bad poetry recital. But honestly, I don't think it would have been better if I had just read the book.

    The ending...whatever. I don't need things wrapped up in a pretty bow, but I like it to be a little more polished. I had to listen to the ending twice to make sure I didn’t miss anything. I didn’t.

    Once again I learn, that just because a book is a best seller, doesn't mean it should be.
