Forthcoming Release
From the real-life granddaughter of the first child depicted in the story, whose family came over in a steamship from Russia in 1913, comes a celebration of the longstanding and varied immigrant experience in America. This clever presentation of the vibrant cultures that make up the Lower East Side of New York City — Russian, Italian, Dominican, Puerto Rican and Chinese — is told through the experiences of five different families who live in the same building over the course of five decades.

Starred Review" "...Gilbert delivers an extraordinary narration. She aptly voices the myriad emotions experienced by this grief stricken boy, varying his tone and pitch, often heartbreakingly. Equally, she succeeds in creating believable and fully fleshed-out characters by clearly differentiating among their voices, respecting gender and age and using authentic native dialect. Spot-on pacing of this thoughtful story solidly establishes a sense of time, allowing the listener to walk every step of this journey with Thomas until its beautifully hopeful end. Death and suicide are topics often tiptoed around, especially with young children. This affecting production may help to initiate important conversations." Booklist
