The Fences Between Us: The Diary of Piper Davis, Seattle, Washington, 1941 by Kirby Larson
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
I think a big difference in the success of a children's book is how likable the main character is. Piper Davis is very likable. She is compassionate, generous, and charming. I also appreciate kid's books that are willing to tell the truth about tricky subjects, such as propaganda.
Piper is realistic. She doesn't go crusading for her friend Betty, but does gradually grow more sure of her opinions.
