The lullaby of Polish girls

"Because of her father's role in the Solidarity movement, Anna and her parents immigrate to the United States in the 1980s as political refugees from Poland. They settle in Brooklyn among immigrants of every stripe, yet Anna never quite feels that she belongs. But then, the summer she turns twelve, she is sent back to Poland to visit her grandmother, and suddenly she experiences the shock of recognition. In her family's hometown of Kielce, Anna develops intense friendships with two local girls--brash and beautiful Justyna and desperately awkward Kamila--and their bond is renewed every summer when Anna returns"--Dust jacket flap.

  • "Anna lives in Brooklyn. But she didn't always. She grew up in Kielce, Poland, where the summers were long and the politics communist. When her parents were indicted for their alliance with anti-government forces, Anna had to flee her homeland, leaving her closest friends behind. Now an adult, she lives in the US and has lost touch with the girls she once knew, the ones she missed so much as a teenager that she'd sneak back into Kielce hidden in the back of a car just to share another summer. When she learns that one of them has suffered a terrible tragedy, she hurries home to Kielce."

  • "Anna and her parents, political dissidents, emigrate from Poland to the US. They settle in Brooklyn among immigrants of every stripe, yet Anna never quite feels that she belongs. The summer she turns twelve, she is sent back to Kielce to visit her grandmother, and develops intense friendships with two local girls - brash and beautiful Justyna and desperately awkward Kamila. Their bond is renewed every summer when Anna returns... Years later, when Justyna suffers a terrible tragedy, it's the perfect excuse for Anna to abandon her own crisis in New York and hurry back to Poland. But when she arrives in her hometown, the reunion does not turn out as expected. It's time to face the past - everything it promised, and everything it shattered."
