This captivating recollection of WWII features a New York schoolboy named Howie. He has a schoolboy crush on his fifth-grade teacher, and when he learns that she is to be fired, he leads the fight to keep her . The story is filled with the small details of life on the home front during the War years, as well as some of the confusion of a boy on the verge of becoming a man while his father is away. Nick Landrum does a good Brooklyn accent. He's a bit slow in his delivery, but still a lot of fun to listen to. M.T.F.
