Jimmy's Stars By: Mary Ann Rodman
Jimmy's Stars is about the relationship between Ellie McKelvey and her brother Jimmy McKelvey. Jimmy is going to war like so many other people in the community. Many have died, and Ellie is afraid that this is going to happen to her brother. This book is set during World War II and deals with how hard it is to lose somebody you love. I really enjoyed this book's emotion and sensitivity. I also like this book because it teaches you that people you don't like also have problems in their lives. If you like meaningful,sad, historical books, then you should really pick this book up at the Hinsdale Middle School library.
