Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The poignant story of World War II back home at last

Finally, the paperback edition of one of Mary Dowing Hahns most gripping and personal stories. Culled from her memories of growing up under the shadows of WWII, this story has touched young readers for more than fifteen years. We are so excited to have it back with us in paper, with a fantastic new cover, available for young readers for many, many more years to come.

Margaret and Elizabeth support everything about the war: the troops, the reasons for going to war, even the food rations. After all, this is the good war and the Americans are the good guys.

But when the girls stumble upon a classmates secret, their feelings about the war begin to change. Is it really a good war? Is there ever such a thing?
