Item description for Doing My Part by Teresa R. Funke...

Based on a true story . . . Until World War II came along, fourteen-year-old Helen Marshall's biggest problem had been her height. Few men in Hayden's Valley, Illinois are as tall as Helen. But when Helen's mother is hurt and can't work and her favorite cousin ships off to fight, Helen must find a way to support both her family and her country. Along with her best friend, Janie, she takes a summer job at a war factory and discovers that not everyone welcomes her enthusiasm. Determined to prove she can handle her new responsibilities, Helen must confront a lazy boss, two older women who try to slow down her work, and townspeople who gang up on one of their own. But when she answers the eerie cries of her mysterious German neighbor, Mrs. Osthoff, Helen learns the true sacrifice of war. And when she keeps a secret for a friend, she realizes that grown-up decisions sometimes have life-or-death consequences.

Reviews - What do customers think about Doing My Part?

Vivid Realism for Middle Grade Readers  May 21, 2008
Doing My Part paints an approachable and real picture of rural American life during the midst of World War II. Based on a true story, this slender novel leaves the reader inspired to reach out to those near us and stand up for what's right. Though the narrative is a bit chatty, Ms Funke, known for her extensive historical reserach, shows how to integrate fiction and non-fiction into a seamless storyline. If you've got young readers at home, especially those studying or especially interested in this period of history, this should be next on their list!
Doing My Part  May 20, 2008
DOING MY PART sets a stage for young girls not only from the WWII era but today as well. The emotions are something every girl experiences in one way or another. Teresa Funke has done an amazing job of incorporating a time that our young people only read about in history books and feelings of today. She is awesome.
Captivating Historical Fiction!  Mar 12, 2008
Teresa R. Funke draws on her fascinating interviews with real people to create an engaging story about a girl coming of age in Illinois during WWII. Young readers will quickly become caught up in Helen's struggles and triumphs. The warm characters, compelling storyline, and vivid historical details help readers gain little-known perspective on a pivotal time in our history. This is a rewarding novel!
