This is a nice book about the time right after World War I. Jeremy finds himself disagreeing with his father over some issues concerning his neighbor. He decides that he needs to travel to Boston to meet his brother coming home from the war. It's a nice read about the thoughts of a young boy who is learning that his father isn't always right and how that changes things in his world.
