For thirteen-year-old Judy Strand, summers in Bay Ridge, Brooklyn, bustle with games of stickball played in the street, fun-filled outings to neighboring Coney Island, and her family’s yearly trip to the Catskill Mountains. But in July 1944, Judy’s carefree days and her innocence are shaken by a discovery: The man she’s always called Pa isn’t her real father. Even more shocking, Judy learns that the father she doesn’t remember was an alcoholic who abandoned his family. That’s why Judy’s mother emigrated to America from Norway. Now Judy feels jumbled inside: She’s angry at her mother for keeping the truth from her–and she’s suddenly awkward around Pa. Nothing her parents say soothes the hurt.At first, even the attentions of Jacob Jacobsen don’t make her feel any better. Judy likes Jacob; it’s just that his dad’s drinking binges hit too close to home. Ashamed, Judy doesn’t want anyone to find out her secret. But as misfortune befalls Jacob, Judy’s close friends, and her own family, Judy rallies to their side, and in the process recognizes that growing up encompasses forgiveness–of others and of herself.From the Hardcover edition.

I thought I was getting a brand new book, but for the price I'm not surprised. I just think that they should be truthful about what you're getting. Anyway, great story, and I have loved it ever since I was a child.

It's "supposed" to take place during World War II, but it doesn't sound perfectly authentic (females getting to play in competitive sports, kids going to the pool, and "going out for pizza", huh?)

The protagonist here is a young girl of Norwegian descent (mm, that's something new) who is tottering on the brink of sexual development (so she will one day help produce the next generation, of course.) The poor dear has to come to terms with her flawless, dreamy tugboating Prince Charming of a father (Electra Complex, anyone?) not being her real, biological dad and her real biological dad drinking himself stinky before disappearing like magic. If that's not all, she also has a mysterious infant sister who had croaked a long ago and a cocky young "bad boy" is coming on to her pretty strong, too. Being a smooth operator, Jacob finally gets his chance when he suddenly smooches innocent young Judy at the gorgeous, secluded area with frothy waterfalls and shimmering rainbows (Wow. Judy's folks not only brought the punk along camping with the family right after one of his skirmishes with the street urchins; Judy COULD have gone home with a very special souvenir that wriggles, poops, and cries for its mother's milk!)

Then Jacob suddenly grows sullen and aloof after being hit by the double whammy of a pal's father being killed in the war and his dear old mother suddenly dying of illness.

(Intermission, children and here are your Kleenex tissues, too. Just turn off your waterworks before you drench yourself. :P )

Rebutted by her "boyfriend's" sulky, standoffish mood, Judy decides to give him the cold shoulder as her youthful body starts turning into a functional baby machine and all her young friends begin getting cozy with each other in preparation to create the "future" generation of stoned hippies and zealous war protestors.

In the meanwhile, Judy's perfect, loving surrogate father is VERY perplexed by his adopted ward's frosty attitude toward him and Judy's mother continues to do what old-fashioned moms are best at: worry and nag and worry and nag and worry and nag and worry and nag and worry and nag and...so on forth.

At long, long last, the pancake-syrupy young adult-level story comes to a close with Judy being forced to go to her humiliating birthday party with a date who had deliberately tried to drown her at the pool out of sheer jealousy at the beginning, Jacob apologizing all over the place, and Judy's mother FINALLY revealing the truth about Judy's long-lost father: he really wasn't so bad at all and that he could perhaps even rival the fabulous Scandinavian knight in shining armor who had gallantly married his bereaved little wife!

Jeez, what a fairy tale. :P

Oh, and I actually read the whole book because it supposedly took place in Brooklyn, which is the setting of one of my own fictional works, BTW.

Dancing in the streets of Brooklyn by April Lurie is based on some true events. A little piece of information I thought was interesting is that April Lurie grew up in Brooklyn, New York along with her character Judy.

Fourteen-year-old Judy Strand is the main character in this book. When Judy was younger, her father abandoned her and her mother. Judy's mom, knowing she would be the sole provider for her family, she set out for America for more opportunity. Before they started their journey, Mrs. Strand had two children, one of which died of pneumonia on their way to America. Judy had no idea that she had a younger sister until, nosing around in her mom's closet.There, she found a photo of a little girl and a birth certificate for an anonymous person. When Judy finally got the guts to ask her mom who this girl was, her mom started to weep uncontrollably. I'm not going to let out the secret of why she was crying..... You'll need to read this book and figure out for yourself the "Big Secret".

Lurie has a great talent for word choice. She is so descriptive; I had a visual of what was going on in the story at all times. Here is a great example; "I awoke to loud voices mixed with aroma of fish balls and creamed cabbage. Ma was fretting like she did when she burned something." You're probably wondering why she was fretting, but I can't give away the whole thing!!

I think this is a great book for ages 9 to 12 both boys and girls as it has many concurrent story lines. This is a very dramatic book for active readers. Why don't you read it and see for yourself. Have a great time reading!

"Dancing in the Streets of Brooklyn" is a warm, beautiful story with authentic characters that have remained in my memory. Lurie avoids melodrama to tell Judy's story with sincerity and compassion. The author's roots in Bay Ridge give the book an authenticity that's refreshing. Not your typical wartime book, "Dancing" shows that while the years were difficult, they were innocent as well. Readers easily feel Judy's joys and sorrows as she comes to terms with the secrets of her past.

i have read this book 3 times in one day. u my think thats crazy but it just shows u how good this book is. a twist of reality, romance, and confilcts is what makes the recipe complete and this book has got it all.
A wonderful story for all ages to read. This is one of those that you don't want to put down. It brings you into the life of the characters. The writer has the capability to bring the reader to a place that you have never been. Written during the close of WWII the story shares the economical and emotional crisis that families endured. It also shares quite a bit about the Norwegian traditions. Fantastic! Thanks for the experience that it brought me.
