“As a nine-year-old boy, Micha is the only member of his family to befriend Adella, 18, the arranged bride for his Uncle Moshe. The kindly Moshe is handsome but a bit of a nebbish, and the owlish, bespectacled young woman was far from the family’s first choice. To Micha’s surprise, Adella selects him to be her bridesman...

This wisp of a story somehow leaves readers with plenty to chew on.”
