While it was another fun story by Wendy Mass I don't like how Davi was portrayed. It was like him being being Jewish was his only defining characteristic. I'm Jewish and let me Jay's say "We aren't any different than anyone else". My friend also read it and than when my Bat Mitzvah came along she wondered why MINE wasn't just like David's. All I did was memorize a Torah passage and lead a service DAVID on the other hand practiced in the pool hole the whole summer. When listening to this book I hope that you don't think that all Jewish people are just like David he's just a stereotype.
