A Novel Series First Edition - Named - BOOK OF THE YEAR (Family & Fiction) 2012 - BOOKS & AUTHORS "Mark Twain meets the Greatest Generation The Pompey Hollow Book Club is the best kind of novel: charming, but with teeth. The narration exudes an experienced innocence with characters at once empathic and courageous. One might be tempted to call its setting a bygone era had this era not fashioned our world... this work moved me deeply." --Stuart Horwitz, Book Architecture "It reads like a NORMAN ROCKWELL painting." Ron Masak, Actor, Author "He and his friends would soon have the daring of Huckleberry Finn. They had to. They were born the year WWII broke out and the nation was attacked by bombers. When the War was over more than seventy million people had been killed. At nine and ten Jerry and his friends had spent half their lives in War - seeing the tragedies and devastation - but also the heroism and sacrifice. They decided to create a secret club of valor. It was young Dale Barber who stepped up on the cemetery stone, raised an arm in the air and announced, "Ain't a mom in the county would stop us from going to a meeting, even on a school night if we were called - The Pompey Hollow Book Club." "Well we might stop saying ain't," said Mary. Mary was made president. She was ten, and the very first girl president in the Unites States of America - to the best of their knowledge. Kids growing up in the shadows of WWII - hunting thieves who were breaking into local businesses- - saving the poultry from the Thanksgiving table.
