Katy's favorite holiday is Rosh Hashanah, when she gets to pick apples and make applesauce with her mother. But what happens when the tradition is interrupted by the early arrival of her new baby cousin? A situation to which every kid can relate, this is a story about what happens when a child realizes she's not always the center of the universe and that family priorities must sometimes change.
