RACHEL AND HERMAN

A family story and a sequel to Rachel, which first took readers into the immigrant Russian Jewish family in New York, describes a first year away from the Lower East Side, in a bigger book store for Papa and at a new school for Rachel and Herman. The chapters are filled with anecdotes- of getting adjusted to Miss Bannerman and the sixth grade, of the trials of gay cousin Boris who comes to America to join the Lessings, of acquiring a house cat and a friend who likes to read books as well as Rachel does. Friendly portrayals keep up the interest, though this seems to have lost some of the sharpness of the former volume.
