As though dealing with the Worm of Jealousy toward her best friend weren't enough Roberta's beloved brother and uncle. The journal of a young girl on the home front during WWII Her brother and uncle are overseas in Europe fighting while Bobby lives with rations victory gardens boys and her first period The daily entries are awkward and don’t read like a true diary Often it reads like a story divided up with a new date heading thrown in creating a continuing narrative of one thought over several days There is poor grammar and word choice in the diary entry portion To some this might seem appropriate as it is intended to be the diary of a young girl however at times it can just leave the reader confused after reading statements that simply don’t make sense “He’s actually very homely except he’s not” p 48 There are letters written by the author’s father who fought in WWII interspersed between the diary entries These often don’t make the most sense even after reading them several times to try to comprehend “I’ve had a few close calls and believe me I dig in and never ever felt like digging a hole as I do some days here and in record time too” p 24 Bobby’s world falls apart when her uncle is killed in action her brother is injured and her unmarried older sister becomes pregnant with a soldier's child Her family struggles to cope with these things in a rather angry and dysfunctional way Her brother comes home to a London Ontario hospital to recover from his injuries and war exhaustion Visiting him Bobby meets many different veterans who are recovering there She learns a little about what they have experienced as well as how difficult their recovery is with such a lack of normalcy in their lives The book focuses uite heavily on the things a young girl might wonder with a heavy emphasis on bras menstrual cycles and wondering where babies come Teacher Application This is a less than ideal read aloud It focuses heavily on female puberty issues and should not be used in a classroom setting where boys are present as this will not enhance their understanding of WWII or hold their interest at all The book does not actually explain how babies are made but it repeatedly refers to this uestion so adults should be prepared for this uestion from any student reading the book if this has not already been explained to the childThis book does provide a nice look at life on the home front Its strength lies in Bobby’s visits to the hospital She learns that injured men are just men and she doesn’t need to be afraid of them She learns compassion and a little about what they are going throughIt might be fun to have students attempt to create their own knitting project just as Bobby and the knitting club had to knit socks and scarves for the soldiersuestionable Language Dmn Dmned p 86 87 Blody Blody Hll p 83 136 141 Hll p 83 148 Bstard p 14 x 2 Good Lord used as an explicative p 83 x 7 Xmas p 20 75 81 Christians considered inappropriate as it removes Christ from Christmas Beggar p 133 “This slippery material was a beggar to work on”Parental Warning The children do a great deal of sneaking around and lying to their parentsThere is heavy emphasis on puberty and all the things a girl might wonder around this issueMenstruation discussion p 19 45 46 78Bras and panties are discussed repeatedly including discussion of boys snapping girls bra straps and the importance of wearing nice panties to a dance as they could be seen while dancing the jitterbugBobby initially spends a lot of time wondering how babies are made then she learns this information The book does not explain the process just includes her wondering and her disgust when she learns p 31 33 48 77 100 101129

I DID NOT like this book When I first picked it up it seemed really interesting but when I started it I got it from the library; so this is probably the reason why I found it boring and cheesy and there were times when a sentence or two would be missing making it difficult to fully enjoy this novel All in all I don't recommend it; it's not what it seems
