The war happened, but only Bobby Booclear remembers it. It lasted less than a day but, in less than six hours, an 11-year-old boy became a war criminal. In Westchester County, New York. It's that kind of story. And Bobby is, finally, telling his version of what happened on that day, in 1954. In a rousing tale filled with cap guns, spin-the-bottle, flavored ice cubes, water bombs, fireworks, and more hammy death scenes than your parents would ever let you watch when you were little, first-time author Bob Nick Shields re-creates a long-ago summer and the thrill of innocence in a funny and touching fictional account of what it was like to be a kid before every family had a television.
