Eliza Newman has no reason to believe that she is anything but ordinary, especially after her teachers place her in the class for slow learners. Her father, Saul, dotes on her older Aaron's rabbinical ambitions. Her mother, Miriam, seems fully absorbed by her law career. When a spelling bee threatens to reaffirm her mediocrity, Eliza amazes everyone: she wins. Her newfound gift garners an invitation not only to the national competition, but to her father's sacred study where a new dictionary beckons. Jewish mysticism lurks in leather tomes, and language offers a spiritual awakening.

Eliza's unexpected success sends her off-kilter family into a tailspin, and Eliza comes to depend on her own divination to hold her family together.
