On the Wings of Heroes
by Richard Peck

Davy Bowman’s dad looks forward to Halloween more than a kid, and Davy’s brother, Bill, flies B-17s. Davy adores these two heroes and tries his best to follow their lead, especially now. World War II has invaded Davy’s homefront boyhood. Bill has joined up, breaking their dad’s heart. It’s an intense, confusing time, and one that will spur Davy to grow up in a hurry. This is one of Richard Peck’s finest novels--a tender, unforgettable portrait of the World War II home front and a family’s enduring love.

Condition:  Our used books are previously owned but in good condition.  Occasionally there's the previous owner's name or inscription on the inside front cover.  Overall though, we are very proud of the quality of our books!  Our new books were purchased as overstock, so they are brand new but often have a small dot or line on the edge of the book (a mark made by the publisher to indicate that it is an overstock/'remainder' book).
