内容简介:

Set in Pennsylvania during the Second World War, this is an unforgettably moving tale of growing up and facing change amid the sacrifices of war. It's September, 1943, and American forces are fighting the Japanese in World War II. By now, eleven-year old Ellie is used to making sacrifices for the war effort, having relinquished her roller skates for the scrap-metal drive. However, nothing prepares her for the ultimate sacrifice when her beloved brother Jimmy is drafted into the service. Quickly, Ellie's life is turned upside down, as her Aunt Toots moves into their home and into Jimmy's bedroom, and her mother even takes a war job at the local factory. As the war drags on, and more families begin to receive the dreaded telegrams informing them that their fathers, sons or brothers are wounded or will never return, Ellie is forced to ask herself if Jimmy will ever come home. Involving, touching and beautifully evocative, Jimmy's Stars will transport readers back to the daily drama and sacrifice of 1940s America.

作者简介:
Mary Ann was inspired to write Jimmy's Stars after reading her uncle's diary (the basis for 'Jimmy') of the time he spent in service during World War II, alongside correspondence between family members both at home and abroad during the war. This grounding in personal and family experience, gives Mary's writing its strength and authenticity. Her multi-award winning book, Yankee Girl is based on her childhood years in Mississippi as the daughter of an FBI agent, sent there to investigate hate crimes during the 1960s civil rights movement.
