Dont Talk to me about the War by David A. AdlerThirteen-year-old Tommy Duncan just wants to root for the Brooklyn Dodgers and listen to the radio. But it’s 1940 and the world is changing. His friend Beth just wants to talk about the war in Europe. That’s an ocean away, though, and Tommy has more immediate concerns—like Beth looking pretty and his mother’s declining health. The stories of a Jewish friend at school, however, begin to make the war more real to him.
Set in the Isolationist period—a time in U.S. history rarely explored in children’s literature—this moving novel features a hero who struggles with first love, family responsibilities, and America’s role in the world.
