Don't You Know Theres a War On?
This book is a great and quick read for kids and teens. The plot was extraordinary and I was so enthralled with it that I didn't want to put it down.
The book begins with a boy named Howie and it takes place in Brooklyn, during World Was II. Howie finds out that his favorite teacher, Miss Gossim, is going to be fired. It is up to Howie and his best friend Denny to save their favorite teacher's job.
I enjoyed this book because it is simple and it is more realistic than most of books I read. I liked Howie because he didn't give up. The story sends an amazing message to kids who read it.
If your are interested in history and you want a quick story to read, this is the book for you. This book is unique, in other words, one of a kind.
I give this book an 8 of 10.
This book tells the story of a boy who has a crush on his teacher,
who is fired. As the boy, Howie, follows and tries to help his teacher,
you get a glimpse of what it is like living in NYC during WWII war
bonds & stamps, rations, air raids, etc.
My favorite part of the book, however, was not the story but the
language. Howie, both the main character and narrator, speaks in slang
for most of the book. This completely took me into the book and was a great, fun read!
