Flamingnet Student Book Reviewer CMy
Will Jennie ever be able to catch Pietro in the
act? Jennie is led to believe that Pietro is a
spy trying to find out information about Boeing,
a factory that makes airplanes for the war, after
she sees him doing some very suspicious things.
One day Jennie overhears Pietro talking to a
strange man about meeting in the underground, and
having no idea where that is, she decides to
follow him. While doing so she runs into a small
problem along the way and has to seek the help of
her brother, Tommy, in order to solve it. Jennie
is uncertain of asking for Tommy's help, for she
is afraid he will take control and boss her
around when it was her idea in the first place.
From growing vegetables in the "Victory Garden"
to collecting scrap metal for the war effort,
Tommy and Jennie are always making everything a
contest between them. Will Jennie ask her brother
for help or will she let Pietro get away and
possibly risk the lives of the many people who
work at Boeing? Find out in this faith-based book
called Jennie's War written by Bonnie Hinman,
which is one of the many wonderful books in the
Sisters in Time series.
This book is set in 1944 during World War 2.
It teaches the reader how the people had to live
and about the many different things they had to
do to help with the war effort. Jennie's War also
teaches you how working together instead of
competing against one another will get you
farther in life. I think this is a great book
that throws a surprise ending at you. I highly
recommend Jennie's War mainly to girls, ages 9-
