Upton Writer Publishes Second Novel

Author of For the Love of Art and Upton resident, Janet Goodfriend, releases her second novel, Mitzvah Straight Up; a contemporary, coming-of-age marvel where a girl discovers that humanity holds the gift of pride. This piercing glimpse into the life of modern adolescence offers many lessons, most notably tolerance, as its back brace wearing main character finds courage to persevere in an oft-brutal world during the year preceding her bat mitzvah. Though she struggles with scoliosis and self-image, she ultimately grasps an outward looking view, finding purpose in helping others.

Set in the author's hometown of Ithaca N.Y., Goodfriend draws much from personal experience but tackles important issues facing today's teens. "It's easy to overlook how much our kids learn in such a short amount of time. Before you know it, they are confronting life changing choices," she says. "My hope is that readers will recognize the story's value before precious teaching moments can become lost. It's also a really great book for anyone to read about a heroic, young woman."

Mitzvah Straight Up is available through Amazon, as paperback and kindle, and through Barnes & Noble's nook. Visit www.janetgoodfriend.com for those links and for more information about the author and her books.
