Synopsis: Eleven-year-old Lena Rosen, the only Jewish child on Moose Street, sees life as an insider and as an outsider.
From School Library Journal:
Grade 4-6-- This unremarkable novel describes the sights, sounds, and people of an ordinary neighborhood, where 11-year-old Lena Rosen lives during the 1960's. Disjointed, humorless, and lacking in plot, Moose Street is a series of vignettes connected only by the girl's perceptions. Lena's greatest conflict is over her family's Jewishness; because they are not religious, the problem is one of social incorrectness. On Sundays, as other children in the neighborhood go to church in their dressy best, she is embarrassed to be gardening with her family. On Tuesday afternoons, all the students at the public school are dismissed two hours early to attend religious education classes, except Lena who is ``Jewish and there is no nearby synagogue.'' Many characters are mentioned in passing, seeming little more than stereotypes: the school bully, the misfit, the hooligan, the brat. Without well-defined characters and plot, Moose Street is little more than an essay of place. The last chapter, entitled ``Moose Street Sleeps,'' sums up the novel's effect. --Alice Casey Smith, Chappaqua Library, NY
