Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Davy Bowmans dad looks forward to Halloween more than a kid, and Davys brother, Bill, flies B-17s. Davy adores these two heroes and tries his best to follow their lead, especially now. World War II has invaded Davys homefront boyhood. Bill has joined up, breaking their dads heart. Its an intense, confusing time, and one that will spur Davy to grow up in a hurry. This is one of Richard Pecks finest novels—a tender, unforgettable portrait of the World War II home front and a familys enduring love.

Synopsis:

In his 30th novel for young adults, Newbery Medalist Peck delivers a tender, poignant, and unforgettable story about a young boy growing up on the homefront during World War II.
