War & Watermelon

Release Date: June 9, 2011

War and Watermelon

It’s the summer of 1969–Woodstock, the moon landing, the New York Mets incredible run toward the pennant, and Brody’s final month before starting junior high school. He lies awake at night listening to the sports talk or the Top 40 on the radio, worrying about his older brother and the possibility of his going to Vietnam, and trying to figure out girls.

You can buy War & Watermelon and many of Rich’s other books at your local bookstore, though a website for independent booksellers, via the Junior Library Guild, and through the usual big online sellers like Amazon.
