Stepping on the Cracks
Winner of the Scott O'Dell award for historical fiction, Stepping on the Cracks is one of Mary Downing Hahn's most gripping and personal stories. Culled from her memories of growing up under the shadows of WWII, the book has touched young readers for more than fifteen years.
Margaret and Elizabeth support everything about the war: the troops, the reasons for going to war, even the food rations. After all, this is the good war and the Americans are the good guys.
But when the girls stumble upon a classmate's secret, their feelings about the war begin to change. Is it really a good war? Is there ever such a thing?
