Book excerpt: The Last Summer of World II takes place May through August of 1945 in the small beach community of Dana Strand Village, a suburb of San Pedro, California. The story focuses around a young boy in his daily routine of protecting his small beach neighborhood. The war becomes personal after it takes away his father and causes his mother to become desolate and lose her good nature and stop smiling. With the help of Hank, a wise old veteran of the Old West, to guide him and teach him courage, and the faith of Sissy, a calf-roping country girl, to believe in him. The kid discovers he can end the war, but to do so, he will have to put his own life in peril; to him it will be worth it to see his mother smile again. But will it be enough to bring his father home? For the most part these characters and events actually did take place.
