The Things a Brother Knows Reviews
"Starred Review. This painful, respectful story of redemption is well worth delving into Yiddish-laden prose." - Kirkus
"Like no small number of young adult novels, The Things a Brother Knows makes you wonder: Who is this book for? Reinhardt says in a letter to readers that Levi, on his quest to understand his brother, goes in a boy and comes out a man. If thats true of her main character, its not true her novel as a whole, which is suspended between boyhood and manhood, a case of arrested literary development." - One Minute Book Reviews
"This thoughtful, disturbing, and insightful novel provides an insiders view of an insular society. Family and social life within today's Chassidic community are portrayed with affection for the warmth and the enduring values but with a clear eye for the vulnerability of the young and the hurt." - School Library Journal
