It's Steelton, Manitoba, in 1964. Thirteen-year-old Maximilian Glick is struggling with the complexities of adulthood while preparing for his Bar Mitzvah. He feels his only hope is the new Rabbi who not only looks pretty strange, but secretly dreams about becoming a standup comic. This slightly different little comedy story is an exploration of intolerance, racism, friendship and self-fulfillment.

Similar to "A Good Place to Come From", this book tells the story of young Jewish boy in a small northern Ontario city and his relationship with his music teacher and an Orthodox rabbi. Mildly amusing. Set in a more innocent time and smaller world or perhaps intended for young readers.
