The Importance of Wings
Robin Friedman

Roxanne just wants to be a normal American girl with a normal American family. But with her mother back in Israel and her father working long hours as a cab driver in Manhattan, Roxanne and her sister, Gayle, have to fend for themselves. Things change, though, when Liat moves into town. Liat challenges Roxanne's assumptions about what it means to be cool, and what it means to be American.
