Noelle (Bellie) | 3 comments A few years ago in school I read a book about a Jewish Polish girl who was deported to Siberia because her family were capitalists. She had a fun-loving grandmother, a strict mother, and a father who spoiled her, I think. There was a character called Vanya the Bum, something about yellow curtains, and she cut her hair at one point. I remember really loving it; but I can't remember who wrote it or what is was called! Please help!
