War and Watermelon

You know I love historical fiction, which gave this book a head start for me liking it.  The title also helped. I LOVE watermelon, so much so that I won a watermelon eating contest when I was five.  This book combined a sports theme with a growing up story and set it all in the middle of giant historic events during a very interesting time in our history.  Brody's love of football made it a little hard for me to totally connect, but it might draw boys or sports lovers who don't already love historical fiction aspect of the story. I did like has watermelon tied the story together.
