Ellie counted the days on the kitchen calendar. October 2nd was a Saturday. Twenty-one days until Jimmy had to go. That was a long time. Maybe the war would be over by then. But the days slipped by as fast as the trees shed their leaves. And the war didn’t end.
Ellie hates the stars proudly displayed in her neighbours’ windows: a blue one for every man gone to serve in the war, a gold one for every man who will never return. She doesn’t want a star – all she wants is for her big brother Jimmy to stay safely at home. But then Jimmy is called up, and Ellie can only desperately hope that his star never turns gold.
A moving tale of growing up and facing change amid the sacrifices of war from Mary Ann Rodman, multi-award winning author of Yankee Girl. Based on the author’s own family experience and with internet links to original materials, photos, letters and websites at Usborne Quicklinks.
