Jennie's War: The Home Front In WWII
Bonnie Hinman
Time Period:  July 1943 - June 1944  Ten-year-old Jennie Fleming is doing what she can to help win a war-she's hoeing weeds in her "Victory Garden." In 1944, with the United States battling both Germany and Japan in a worldwide conflict, everyone must play a part in the overall war effort. Jennie's War uses actual historical events to tell the intriguing fictional story of a young girl on the "home front"-and her suspicions that a new man in the neighborhood might be a spy. The compelling reading makes it a favorite of eight- to twelve-year-old girls.
