Title: Meet Rebecca Series: American Girls: Rebecca #1
Author: Jacqueline Dembar Greene
Rebecca Rubin longs to be the center of
attention, but it's not easy in a family of five children! When mysterious
cousin Max, the actor, tells her the secret to pleasing an audience, Rebecca
can hardly wait to try it out. Then she learns that her young cousin Ana and
her family are in danger--they must escape Russia and come to America. Rebecca
decides to raise money for their passage by putting on a show right in her New
York City neighborhood-until her disapproving grandmother steps in.
Unexpectedly, Rebecca finds another way to earn money. But she knows that for
her plan to work, she'll have to keep it a secret.
Meet Rebecca begins when Rebecca is one of five children in
her family. She wants to be an actor when she grows up, but her family doesn’t
think that’s a good idea. And when her younger cousin Ana is sick in Russia,
she will do everything she can think of to help her father raise the money to
buy them tickets to get to America.
Rebecca was a wonderful young girl who at times seemed
selfish, but truly she just felt left out, and did the right thing in the end.
I truly adored her a whole lot!
I thought the whole plot line was interesting, and I really
loved all of the characters as well. I can’t wait to read more about Rebecca
and her family!
