Publisher Summary
One day, on a class trip to Ellis Island, Dominic Cantori faces his worst fantsty--a tour guide asks the children about their families. Filled with shame, Dominic flees from his class and hides until the museum is dark and deserted. Now, his only solace is the recorded voices on the display telephones of the immigrants who came to Ellis Island so long ago. But to Dominic's surprise, the voice of the Italian immigrant suddenly begins to speak to him! And before he knows it, he's transported back in time--to Italy in 1908. There he unlocks the door to his past, and discovers what it feels like to be loved by his own family.
