Review: Set in Bronx, New York, in 1940, thirteen-year-old Tommy is interested in maintaining a quiet, mundane life filled with school, friends, playing baseball, and keeping up the Brooklyn Dodgers. However, he can't escape the war because his friend Beth makes sure that he reads the war news in the paper and his friend Sara is worried about the fate of her relatives in Europe. Adler has written another winner about this tense time in American history.
