Review: The Renegade Reporters
The Renegade Reporters
by Elissa Brent Weissman
Dial Books (Penguin Random House)
Category: Middle Grade
Reviewer: Stacy Mozer
The Judaism in this story is built into the character. As Ash is following her news story, she is also celebrating Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur and sharing her family's traditions. The book has positive and authentic Jewish religious or cultural content, is appropriate for the intended grade level in style, vocabulary, format, and illustration, and is solidly rooted in authentic and accurate detail through scholarship and research by the author.
