Its Up to Charlie HardinLimbs where any fall could break an arm a leg or a neck It's up to Charlie Hardin when a dog shooting neighbor must be taught to keep his hands off Charlie's loyal best friend even if that means inventing the world's most effective long range pumpkin slingshot And it's up to Charlie Hardin to explore a boy sized storm culvert that leads into darkness simply because that's what a red blooded boy has to do even if it leads to the heart of a perilous criminal plot built on Nazi schemes and greed Charlie understands that no matter the cost when danger arrives at his doorstep to be brave resolute clever and sometimes just a tiny bit nuts is the only thing that counts when all is said and done For the one surefire ingredient every glorious summer adventure always reuires is a willing and resolute. This review originally published in ahref For a Good Book Rated 25 of 5It is the summer of 1942 and young boys don't sit around the house they go outside and they explore and than likely get into a little bit of trouble Charlie Hardin is a pretty typical boy in that regard His parents have given him just one rule stay out of trouble But when Charlie and a buddy get mixed up in a counterfeiting ring they do anything but keep out of troubleThere have been a few really good 'buddy' books for boys over the years and this one sets itself apart and a little out of reach by taking place in the WWII era While this somewhat uniue time frame is interesting it also keeps most of the readers from easily identifying with the characters What we do see is that boys and their outdoor adventures haven't changed a whole lot through the course of a generation or twoThe addition of a couple of counterfeiters who think they've found a good place to set up shop adds some plot to the story giving the reader something to anticipate wondering when Charlie's adventures will intersect with the counterfeiters and then wondering how things will resolveOverall it's a fine story mildly entertaining but I was never able to truly connect with it I was always an outside observing never brought into the story which is fine but then it needs to move along at a uicker pace to keep us engagedLooking for a good book It's Up to Charlie Hardin by Dean Ing is a boy's adventure story without much to recommend it but is an otherwise okay readI received a digital copy of this book from the publisher through Edelweiss in exchange for an honest review
