ABOUT THE BOOK: After her family moves from Germany to Texas in 1847, fifteen-year-old Tina chronicles in letters to her grandmother their struggle to survive in a strange new place while preserving their traditional German ways. LETTERS TO OMA is a charming, informative novel that sweeps the reader back to a very particular time and place. And Tina von Scholl is irresistible as correspondent and as heroine.
