We are so Crashing your Bar Mitzvah!! By Fiona Rosenbloom (aka Amanda Stern ‘89) The dust jacket tells us that even shiksas will smile. I can testify that this shiksa, who left eighth grade woes behind over six decades ago, LOLed her way through the whole thing. One of the few rewards of aging is that I will never have to be twelve or thirteen again. How does anyone survive it? Stacy, so beyond cool, is nonetheless left off the guestlist. Quel choc, as she might say. (Nice to see some French remembered).The outsized feelings and actions, the hopes, the crushing failures, the terrifying peer pecking order, the boys, the genius little brother, and the sober attempts to maneuver through the social minefield will keep the young and old turning the pages.
