A work of non-fiction by Margot Vanderstraeten (in Dutch/ Flemish). For six years Margot is tutoring the kids of the orthodox jewish family Schneiders. With warmth she tells the tale of how she, co-inhabeting with an Iranian boyfriend, slowly got accepted in their family, and with compassion and empathy she shows the life of Orthodox Jews in Antwerp. 

Books like these make you want to read non-fiction more often.
