Ages 9 to 12 years. Based on a true story, this historical fiction recounts a young British boy's adventures and the forging of a friendship with an American pilot and his crew. The friendly airmen with the United States' Eighth Air Force, "The Mighty Eighth" give the boy hope when Hitler's Nazis seem unstoppable. This coming-of-age account teaches that despite the horrors of war, something good can be created from the worst of times and confirms the importance of faith, family, and freedom, and is a testimony to the resilience of the human spirit.
