Queen of Secrets by Jenny Meyerhoff

High School sophomore Essie Green has decided that this is going to be her year. She makes the cheerleading squad and catches the eye of Austin King, the captain of the football team.

What Essie didn’t expect was that her cousin Micah would be moving to her hometown and joining the football team. Micah’s family observes many of the Jewish traditions and holidays including wearing a kippah. Essie and her grandparents do not follow any of the Jewish traditions nor celebrate the Jewish holidays. Essie starts hanging out with the popular crowd and does not tell them that Micah is her cousin. Several of the football players start to give Micah a difficult time and Essie is forced to reevaluate her new life and popularity. Meyerhoff does a great job with depicting the characters and the story in this work. Readers may find that the story is unrealistically wrapped up too neatly in the end. Tee Cotter, Port Chester.
