War and Watermelon by Rich Wallace

Summary: As the summer of 1969 turns to fall in their New Jersey town, twelve-year-old Brody plays football in his first year at junior high while his older brother’s protest of the war in Vietnam causes tension with their father.   




This book is okay. It does not have such an interesting plot as it could have. I have not read a really good book that has something to do with the Vietnam War. This book gets surprisingly boring at times. This is not an OPLbery winner.-Eric

I really didn’t like this book. It was hard to tell what the point of the story was. The transitions from one point to another were bad. Also, I felt that the author didn’t explain things thoroughly. I couldn’t relax with the book and enjoy it because the characters seemed unreal. This is not an OPLbery winner. – Maggie
