The Blue Star by Tony Earley

The Blue Star

Years ago, I read a book called Jim the Boy, where the author, Tony Earley, introduced us to a ten year old boy named Jim Glass.  I really liked that novel, and so I was happy to find that Mr. Earley had continued with Jim’s story in The Blue Star.  Set in North Carolina on the eve of World War II, Jim Glass is a senior in high school, making his way through his classes, interest in girls and his impending manhood.

I liked this novel, too.  Despite the era, it’s easy to see a bit of ourselves here.
