When his father dies, Dave knows nothing will ever be the same. And then it happens. Dave lands in an orphanage -- the cold and strict Hebrew Home for Boys in Harlem -- far from the life he knew on the Lower East Side. But he's not so worried. He knows he'll be okay. He always is. If it doesn't work out, he'll just leave, find a better place to stay. But it's not that simple.

Outside the gates of the orphanage, the nighttime streets of Harlem buzz with jazz musicians and swindlers; exclusive parties and mystifying strangers. Inside, another world unfolds, thick with rare friendships and bitter enemies. Perhaps somewhere, among it all, Dave can find a place that feels like home.

    " I liked 'Dave at Night' a lot. it was very different in tone and plot than some of Ms. Levine's other stories, so it was a neat surprise. Of course, it is a sad book because it's about orphans and orphanages; maybe for some of the older readers? "

    " A wonderful, moving story, and a great piece of historical fiction. "

    " A great book about family and friends. It was great to get to know Dave, and just what a rascal he is. "

    " I pressed my 11 year old to read this because I'd like to encourage him to branch out and read books about real people instead of just fantasy characters. I asked him to read 30 pages to see if he liked it. I like to walk it like I talk it, so I started reading. I really like the protagonist's voice and sense of humor. Dave reminds me of my son, but my son still hasn't picked up the book! "
