"Grown-ups said us kids could help our country win the war. Eat more corn. Give up sugar. Buy Thrift stamps. Collect prune pits. After a whole year doing this sissy stuff, we still hadn't won. I wasn't old enough to enlist, but this summer I'd do something dangerous. Something tough and brave."           --George Callahan, age 12

Set in 1918 Kansas City, CALLAHAN CROSSROADS brings you to the heart of the World War I home front. Issue-driven and entertaining, it's a coming-of-age story that will resonate with readers of all ages.
