"It's 2002. In the aftermath of the twin towers, ... Shirli Berman is intent on moving forward ... She auditions for the lead role in Fiddler on the Roof, but is crushed to learn that she's been given the part of the old Jewish mother ... rather than the coveted part of the sister ... Deciding to throw herself into the role, she rummages in her grandfather's attic for some props. There, she discovers an old violin in the corner--strange, since her Zayde has never seemed to like music ... Showing it to her grandfather unleashes an anger in him she has never seen before, and while she is frightened of what it might mean, Shirli keeps trying to connect with her Zayde and discover the awful reason behind his anger"--Dust jacket flap.
