Penina Levine has a bossy best friend, a tattletale sister, crazy parents, and a big, fat zero on her school assignment. It was a stupid assignment, completely impossible, totally unfair. She's never going to do it, not ever, and it's no use telling her parents about it. They never listen to her anyway. But Penina's grandmother does. Grandma doesn't think Penina should do the assignment. It's a matter of principle. It's a matter of strength. It's a matter of five thousand years of history, four cups of wine, and a couple dozen hard-boiled eggs.aquot;Do you know why we have eggs at the Seder?aquot; said Grandma. aquot;Uh-huh, aquot; Penina said. ... Not eggs. An egg, when you cook it, gets hard.aquot; She took an egg from the colander and tapped it on the counter. aquot;Thata#39;s like the Jewish people, aquot; she said.
