Foster's War Author:Carolyn Reeder Meet eleven-year-old Foster Simmons, whose older brother, Mel, is fighting in World War II. At home with his demanding father, Foster does his best to win his own personal battles.

First, his older brother gets shipped overseas as a gunner on a B-26, and then his best friend, Jimmy, is exiled to an internment camp. Everything is changing for Foster, except one thing he wishes would change the most--his father's cold, harsh attitude. His mother say's that everyone has to pitch in and work for the peace effort, but it's not until a crisis rocks his family that Foster realizes what he's fighting for.
