Description

SEWING! NO ONE could hate it more than Dina Kirk. Endless tiny stitches, button holes, darts. Since she was tiny, she' s worked in her family' s dressmaking business, where the sewing machine is a cranky member of the family. When 13-year-old Dina leaves her small town in Germany to join her uncle' s family in Brooklyn, she turns her back on sewing. Never again! But looking for a job leads her right back to the sewing machine. Why did she ever leave home? Here she is, still with a needle and thread-- and homesick to boot. She didn' t know she could be this homesick, but she didn' t know she could be so brave either, as she is standing up to an epidemic or a fire. She didn' t know she could grow so close to her new family or to Johann, the young man from the tailor' s shop. And she didn' t know that sewing would reveal her own wonderful talent-- and her future. In Dina, the beloved writer Patricia Reilly Giff has created one of her most engaging and vital heroines. Readers will enjoy seeing 1870s Brooklyn through Dina' s eyes, and share her excitement as she discovers a new world. "From the Hardcover edition."
