A razor-sharp, hilarious, and poignant memoir about growing up in the closed world of the ultraorthodox Jewish community. The third of six children in a family that harks back to a gloried Hassidic dynasty, Judy Brown grew up with the legacy of centuries of religious teaching and the faith and lore that sustained her people for generations.
"More than a love story..."
All of her life, Dancia Lewis has wanted to use her powers for good. And now that she’s learned the truth about Delcroix Academy - and herself - she may just get the chance. But being part of Delcroix’s top-secret Program isn’t anything like Dancia expected. She has to ask herself: What happens to the Talented kids who refuse to pledge their loyalty to the Program? And why did her friend Jack run away rather than join? Dancia’s adorable boyfriend Cam insists they need the help of every Talented student to defend Delcroix from dangerous enemies outside their gates. But Dancia has to wonder: What if Delcroix’s most frightening enemies come from within?
Danica Lewis accepts a scholarship to Delcroix Academy, a school for kids with special "skills". But once she arrives at the mysterious school, Danica suspects the recruiters know more about her "gift" than they are letting on. Previously published as The Candidates: Delcroix Academy, Book 1.
