Summary: "A heart-warming story about time-honored rituals and a young boy's rite of passage. [It is] the story of a wager between two boys...shortly before Yom Kippur...For Harry it means the chance to leave the world of his sister and her friends and to join Bernard and the older boys on his block. But to win the bet he must fast on Yom Kippur--his first fast ever. Eventually both boys come to learn as much about honor and integrity as they do about one of Judaism's most important holidays."
