Summary
The sister of a Marine fighting in a war she does not believe in, our zealous heroine must reconcile her life as anti-war demonstrator with that of her brother.

An agonzing dilemma plagues these brother-sister diarists.
He is a Marine stationed in Vietnam. She is at home in America, far away from her brother's war zone, fighting for peace. As the marine writes in his journal about his experiences as a soldier, fighting an enemy he can't see, his sister seeks peace. In these gripping installments of DEAR AMERICA and MY NAME IS AMERICA, Ellen Emerson White captures the unique time period when america was at war both in a far-off place, and at home where adults and children alike marched in the streets for peace and freedom. Poignant and complex, these two characters will give readers a glimpse into perhaps the most tumultuous time in modern American history.
Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "Gr. 7^-10. White does a good job of fusing the personal with the political in this Dear America series companion to The Journal of Patrick Seamus Flaherty [BKL Jl 02]. Patrick's teenage sister, Molly, at home in Boston in 1968, is the focus. She's not sure she supports the war. Does her ambivalence mean she's betraying her beloved brother? The story unfolds through Molly's diary entries, which depict how the war affects daily life and her Irish Catholic family. In the background are the tumultuous events of the times--the political assassinations, the civil rights and women's movements--which Molly does engage with. The main story, however, is about Molly's war at home, and the most moving entries are about her volunteer work at a hospital, where she encounters firsthand what could happen to her brother. A long historical essay at the back, with several pages of photos, fills in more of the history. As with Patrick's journal, notes emphasize that the story is fiction. Why, then, does an epilogue tie everything up as if the events were true? Hazel Rochman"
