First published in 1955, The Changelings is a novel about a pair of stubborn adolescent girls who refuse to accept the racism and anti-Semitism of their respective communities. Their courage allows them to question and to cross over into the no-man''s land of segregated urban neighborhoods claimed most recently by Jews, but now-in the early fifties-needed by African Americans. Anzia Yeziersky, in the "New York Times," wrote that "in Judith, the author has created a portrait of a new kind of teenage gang leader, so imaginatively realized that she transcends mere realism."
From the Publisher:
The turmoil that erupts when the first Blacks move into a Midwestern Jewish community of the 1950s is seen through the eyes of two teenage girls--one Jewish, one Black--who become friends amid the anger.
Annotation:
A novel about two teenage girls--one Jewish, one African American--and their attempts to overcome the racism and anti-Semitism of their communities in 1950s America.
