My Friend the Enemy (follow link and scroll down for synopsis)
by J.B. Cheaney
Yet another book I reviewed for our school library. I enjoyed the first person narrative, and how some scenes blend from reality right into her imagination, though a less than careful reader might be confused. The story is full of great characters, exciting adventures, tender friendships, and hard-reality situations. An excellent story of friendship, courage, patriotism, and over-coming prejudice.
Age recommendation: 11 and up (maybe lower, if the child is mature and a good reader)
