A Jewish boy falls in love with a fellow counselor at summer camp. A group of Jewish friends take the trip of a lifetime. A girl meets her new boyfriend's family over Shabbat dinner. Two best friends put their friendship to the test over the course of a Friday night. A Jewish girl feels pressure to date the only Jewish boy in her grade. Hilarious pranks and disaster ensue at a crush's Hanukkah party.

From stories of confronting their relationships with Judaism to rom-coms with a side of bagels and lox, It's a Whole Spiel features one story after another that says yes, we are Jewish, but we are also queer, and disabled, and creative, and political, and adventurous, and anything we want to be. You will fall in love with this insightful, funny, and romantic Jewish anthology from a collection of diverse Jewish authors.

About the author

Katherine Locke lives and writes in a very small town outside of Philadelphia, where she's ruled by her feline overlords and her addiction to chai lattes. She writes about that which she cannot do: ballet, time travel, and magic. When she's not writing, she's probably tweeting. She not so secretly believes most stories are fairy tales in disguise. Her YA debut, The Girl with the Red Balloon, was a Sydney Taylor Honor Book. You can find Katherine online at @Bibliogato on Twitter and KatherineLockeBooks.com.

Laura Silverman received her MFA in writing for children from the New School. She is the author of Girl Out of Water and You Asked for Perfect. She currently lives in Atlanta, Georgia, and spends a lot of time on the floor petting dogs. You can say hello on Twitter at @LJSilverman1 or through her website, LauraSilvermanWrites.com.
