    A Wonderful Work of Historical Fiction

    This book, about a 10-year old girl named Kay Hennings growing up in the mid-1940s, is a wonderful historical fiction story. Kay has troubles at home, at school, and not to mention what was going on in the war around her. Yet she seems to manage while being the subject of her stepmother, Grace's abuse. She is a selfish woman who thinks little of Kay. She blames her for everything that goes wrong. Kay loses her friend when she moves to New York. Her parting words were, "Keep smiling through, honey." But Kay doesn't think there's any way she can smile through without her best friend. Things don't get any better when she witesses her grandfather being arrested at the local ice-cream shop and the reporters want to interview her to find out what really happened. Grace says that if Kay tells the truth, her grandfather will be looked down upon. But Kay's new friend, Mrs. Leuldoff, says go with what her heart says. Does Kay do the right thing? Or does Grace's opinion get the better of her? All Kay knows is that she has to keep smiling through and hope for the best..

    A Page Turner!!

    Kay is a brave little girl. She handles life as it's thrown at her. It brings to life what people had to deal with at that time. I would recommend it to anyone who enjoys a good book.
