What a great find! My cousins, Erin and William, told me about this young adult book, set in Hickory, North Carolina, my home town, during World War II. I didn't know that Hickory had a polio epidemic in the 1940s and housed a regional polio hospital. Now, I'm anxious to learn more about it.

This is a book that I will recommend to all my sixth-graders!
