Review: Destination Unknown

Micah’s family’s Judaism does not play a large role in the novel, but rather it appears in small, natural-feeling details throughout. The family keeps a mezuzah on their front doorpost, Micah’s mom makes chicken kreplach soup for CJ, and a pivotal scene involves Micah’s parents attending a Hanukkah party. Reform readers will likely relate to Micah’s family and see something of their own experience reflected there.
