With her father away at war to fight Hitler a young girl gains strength by joining her community in battling polio in this Parents' Choice Silver Honor Book based on the epidemic and the Miracle of Hickory Hospital in Hickory North Carolina Ann Fay Honeycutt accepts the role of man of the house when her father leaves because she Really liked this story based on the true story of a hospital for polio patients in Hickory NC in the 1940s The characters were realistic as were their struggles and issuesillness death friendship racial segregation responsibility rationing WWII It was refreshing to hear the tale through the eyes of a 13 year old girl who was ecstatic to be left as the man of the house where her father left to fight WWII although no child should ever have to go through what she went through Unfortunately I'm sure stories like hers are ones that could be told time and again The story flowed from one chapter to the next and it was difficult to put down I highly recommend this carefully researched book I've always said that times than not YA fiction has rings around adult fiction and this novel is another testament to that factWithout giving the story awaySomething that surprised me A public health official visited the a home where a teenager had been left to care for her much younger siblings He left orders and said he'd return the next day See if that would fly now However I guess at that time and especially given the circumstances there wasn't much else to be done
