Summary, etc.:
Despite her grandmother's wise words about how moving to a new place can be both bitter and sweet, Hannah feels only bitterness as she tries to get used to her new house. But when she sees the new home in the soft light of the Shabbat candles and a new friend reaches out with a special gift, Hannah begins to realize that sweetness can come from unexpected places. Includes author's note about Jewish traditions.
"When Hannah's family has to move, her grandmother tells her how she felt leaving the old country--it was both bitter and sweet. As Hannah leaves her friends behind and tries to get used to a new house, she only feels bitterness. Was her grandmother wrong about the sweetness? Hannah starts to feel better about the move when she sees her new house in the soft light of the Shabbat candles. When a new friend reaches out with a special gift, Hannah realizes that sweetness can come from unexpected places and that she can even create some herself."-- Provided by publisher.
