Bud Shoemaker rocks his small Pennsylvania town when he decides to become a conscientious objector during World War II. Now, fourteen-year-old Jubal, who has always idolized Bud, wonders if he can be like his older brother -- if he even wants to -- when Bud's decision is tearing their own family apart. In her first historical novel, young-adult fiction pioneer M. E. Kerr delivers a brilliantly insightful story about a rarely discussed aspect of wartime life. Copyright © Libri GmbH.
