Launch of Another Me (Tundra Books).

Seventeen-year-old Natan has a safe and happy life in fourteenth-century Strasbourg, France. He works with his father in his rag trade, helps his mother around the house and keeps a watchful eye on his younger brother, Shmuli. He’s even developing feelings for Elena, the daughter of the master draper who is his father’s best customer.

But something is amiss in the streets of Strasbourg. There is tension between the Jewish community and the rest of the citizens, and there is fear as the deadly plague sweeps through towns and cities nearby. Rumors begin to circulate that Jewish residents are contaminating the town’s well water. Natan knows that there are dangerous days ahead. When he sees who really poisoned Strasbourg’s water, he is determined to speak the truth. But a moment of violence threatens to derail his plans and change his life in ways he could never have imagined.

Hungarian-born novelist Eva Wiseman has received numerous prizes, including the McNally Robinson Books for Young People Award (three times), the prestigious Geoffrey Bilson Award for Historical Fiction, and the Canadian Jewish Book Award. Wiseman is the mother of two and lives in Winnipeg with her husband.
