Before the arraignment, before I even knew for sure that my father would be arrested, I'd written to Jake about how my father became religious to hide his real self. And Jake wrote back that his parents "probably became religious to hide, or change, who I really am too."-- Yeshiva Girl by Rachel Mankowitz. Narrator Izzy is a teen age girl on Long Island who's life turns an unexpected corner when her father is arrested for sexual assault of one of his student -- charges Izzy believes are true.
