‘Saving Myself, a Los Angeles Childhood’, a memoir by Jeanne Simonoff belongs in every school library throughout the world. Every student who is struggling with identity and esteem issues should read this book.
Young Jeanne goes through loss, deceit, bigotry, intolerance, and being shaken by the words of her rabbi. Yet, she comes out a better, more soulful human being in the end.
In a poignant, lyrical and spiritual way, Ms. Simonoff’s words comfort and validate the tribulations that many of us went through in our growing up. You don’t need to be a girl, Jewish, from Los Angeles to get the message. You just need a heart, the gift of remembrance, and a love for humanity. Get this book.
Peace & Blessings,
