AND IN THE MORNING
Toronto, Ont. : Kids Can Press,
the diary of young Jim Hay, we get to see what life was like for a young
boy who went to war. Jim was too young to enlist in World War I,
but when his father is killed in the war, Jim and his friends lie about
their ages and enlist. At first, life in the army is rather boring
and tedious. As they begin to see action, we see a change in Jim
and his view of the war. When Jim is involved in one of the bloodiest
battles in the war, we see the horrors of war through the eyes of a teenager.
