Sheila OConnor Ç 8 Summary

Summary Until Tomorrow Mr Marsworth ☆ eBook, ePUB or Kindle PDF Sheila OConnor Ç 8 Summary Set against the backdrop of the Vietnam War one young girl is determined to save her brother from the draft and gets help from an unlikely source in this middle grade tale perfect for fans of The Wednesday Wars When eleven year old Reenie Kelly's mother passes away she and her brothers are shipped off to live with their grandmother Adjusting to life in her parents' Midwestern hometown isn't easy but once Reenie takes up a paper route with her o. In the summer of 1968 Reenie Kelly has just moved to Lake Liberty Minnesota She has been going through a difficult time ever since her mom died from cancer The family has very little money so her father has had to leave the children Reenie and her older brothers Dare and Billy in the care of their grandmother while he goes to North Dakota for a job building roads Billy who was meant to go to college must now pump gas to earn money and worse he worries constantly about being drafted to serve in Vietnam To raise money to possibly help Billy pay for college Reenie and Dare share a paper route Reenie who is highly enthusiastic about having a job goes out of her way to introduce herself at every house where she will deliver papers Only Mr Marsworth a reclusive pacifist who has been ostracized by his neighbors for many years does not respond when she rings his bell Unwilling to remain strangers Reenie begins writing letters to Mr Marsworth Though clearly overwhelmed by Reenie s unfettered affection for him Mr Marsworth writes replies every so often and through this correspondence the unlikely pair devise strategies for keeping Billy safely out of Vietnam and bring to light the long lost secret of the connection between their familiesMy first thought about this book on the heels of reading PS I Miss You was Not another novel told in letters I appreciate that Dear Mr Henshaw was the favorite novel of a lot of people when they were kids but that does not mean newer books should imitate its epistolary format When Reenie sent her first letter the explanation for her wanting to reach out to Mr Marsworth did feel a little gimmicky and I was worried that the book was going to be tedious to read all the way through But then I read Mr Marsworth s first reply to Reenie and his character came right off the page fully alive after just a few sentences I knew him already and could clearly hear his voice after just one letter After that I realized that gimmick or not the format of the book was going to take a backseat to the hearts and souls of these characters and their connectionIt was so refreshing to read a middle grade novel that felt purely like a children s book with a uintessential middle grade protagonist I think a lot of today s children s authors are caught up in politics and activism and as a result strong adult feelings on a variety of topics come through in their writing This book while very much about both politics and activism truly does not seem to have any agenda aside from telling a compelling story This book not only develops a friendship between two endearing characters it also gives readers a taste of how Americans reacted to the war in Vietnam It explains the concept of conscientious objection in a way kids can understand and it also shows how the older generation of the time thought about Vietnam in light of the events of World War II when they themselves were young The author or at least the story certainly seems to have a point of view on the issue of war but it is not forcibly crammed down the reader s throat nor are characters automatically vilified for taking a different outlook Some characters behave badly others behave wellMy dad enlisted in the Air Force during the time period in which this book is set and though he was not a conscientious objector who opposed war in all forms he did protest to bombing villages where women and children would be killed and refused to do so I grew up hearing stories of how scared he was to stand up for what his conscience told him was right and how much of a relief it was when he was given an honorable discharge instead of a court martial I also remember there were still people in my hometown who considered him a coward even 25 years later when I was hearing these stories This book was probably a bit appealing to me because of this personal connection but I also liked that it rang true with my father s experiences suggesting to me that the author did her research and that she presents a reality based view of the historical events that inform this novelI also loved that the Kelly family was Catholic but that Catholicism is not the main focus of the novel It was interesting to hear the characters comparing the uaker religion to the Catholic faith and pleasing to me as a Catholic parent to see mention of the characters attending Mass as though it were a perfectly normal and reasonable thing to do After the horrible negativity toward the Church that I encountered in PS I Miss You it was nice to have a positive portrayal even though there are only a handful of Catholic referencesThere are a few minor issues in this book the font is tiny and there are no chapters to break up the letters into smaller groups The book is also dauntingly long at first glance though I was able to read it over the course of an afternoon and evening with several interruptions thanks in part to Reenie s fun and appealing voice I also have to point out that the publisher s comparison of this book to The Wednesday Wars is not the most apt Both are set during the same time and Vietnam provides the backdrop to both but in every other way they are very different books I enjoyed them both nearly eually but I wouldn t necessarily suggest one as a read alike for the other Overall though Until Tomorrow Mr Marsworth is an emotionally satisfying and completely child friendly story about the effects of war on one family and the importance of hope in the face of fear and adversityThis review also appears on my blog Read at Home Mom
