Summary, etc.:
"It is December 8, 1941. Everyone in the school assembly in Artie Garber's school in Birney, Illinois is hushed and serious. They are listening to President Roosevelt declare that the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor has brought on war. Down the street Artie's big brother, Roy, recovering from a hangover, is preparing to join the Marines. Shirley, a girl Roy cares for, is taking a new interest in the would-be soldier. And Arties, "going on 11," prepares to do his best for the War Effort. This story of a small town in World War II is told in a new edition celebrating the 70th anniversary of the end of the war -- and the enduring popularity of a book that has become an American classic." -- Page 4 of cover.
