Meggie Dillon’s life has been turned upside down by World War II. Her
older brother Eddie enlisted and was shipped off to fight in Europe. And
people say that anywhere else Grandpa would be turned in because he’s
German, and people might think he’s a spy. Is it true? Could Grandpa
be taken away?
Meggie’s father has announced that they must help the
war effort and move to Willow Run, Michigan, where he’ll work nights in a
factory building important war planes that will help fight the enemy in
Europe. Willow Run will be the greatest adventure ever, Meggie thinks.

questions about courage, and what it takes to go into battle, like
Eddie, and how to keep hope alive on the home front.
