Dove Song

author: Kristine L. Franklin

A Minnesota Book Award Winner

"Both a sensitive story of friendship and family problems and solid historical fiction." School Library Journal

Bobbie Lynn's mother has always been kind of delicate and moody, dependent on Daddy for everything. Now Daddy has been sent away to Vietnam, and Bobbie Lynn is worried. So is her older brother, Mason. How is Mama going to take care of them without Daddy's help for a whole year? And what if Daddy never comes home at all?

At once wrenching and uplifting, Dove Song tells a powerful story of learning to ask for help and discovering that others will be there when you do.
"Two young people take on more than they can handle in this anguished, reflective story set on the home front during the Vietnam War." Kirkus Reviews
