Savta | 58 comments I think this book was published in 1990's, I thought the title was something like "the year of my war" (unable to find with bing search) about a girls' home economics class set during WWII so thrift/economy was a theme and there was a softball team I believe. Possibly set on East Coast and even tho it was high school setting, I don't think it was a YA novel. I probably found the book on a bargain table at Barnes & Noble.

don't remember names or places. seems like it was told in the first person. don't recall the jacket either.

don't think so, no 'enemy' soldiers to my recollection.

Jena | 40 comments Long shot: Bat 6 by Virginia Euwer Wolff? I've never read it, but it's about softball & WWII. It is YA, though. And set in jr. high, I think.

Savta | 58 comments it isn't The Tamarisk Tree or Bat 6, but thank you for the suggestions....

Savta | 58 comments I'm still trying to recall this book; I'm thinking that it was actually a post high school story, more likely a business testing recipes and household hints. The point of view is from one of the girls employed to test recipes; I don't think there's much drama/romance to the story; not sure what the conflict is that drives the story line :(
hope that jogs someone's memory.

Sounds like it is the book; thank you. I'll look for it at the library and then I'll be sure. I'll be back to close this search as soon as I check at the library ;)
