Toronto : Douglas & McIntyre,
IL 5-8, RL 5.6
O'Boy is a beautiful young boy. Everyone says so. He lives
in Ottawa with his parents and his disabled twin brother. His dad
is rather nasty and doesn't treat Martin well. But at least he's
here. Martin's best friend, Billy, lives with his mother while his
father is away in the war. The two boys follow the course of World
War II and sense that the war will be ending soon. As summer approaches,
the two boys are selected for the summer boys choir at church. Not
only do they get to sing in the church, they get paid for it as well.
At first, all goes well. But then they learn that there are some
things that you just shouldn't have to do.
