I love this book and its snappy dialogue. Although it is a heavy topic (World War II), author Mary Ann Rodman lightens it in places where its needed and yet, reminds us that no one wins when nations go to war. Eleven-year-old Ellie McKelvey's life is turned upside down when her beloved brother Jimmy is drafted and her Aunt Toots moves in. It is a must read for those who love great mid-grades for children.
