Shooting the Moon

Shooting the Moon ($16.99) by Frances O'Roark Dowell tells the story of twelve-year-old Jamie Dexter. Her father, the Colonel, has always been her hero and she is puzzled when he is less than happy about big brother TJ's decision to postpone college, enlist in the army and go to Vietnam. Instead of letters, TJ sends rolls of film. Jamie enlists the help of a Viet vet to learn how to develop film and the pictures she sees show her another side of the war--far from the glory. A timely story that weighs the romantic notion of war against its human cost, available at Otto's, the booklover's paradise in the heart of downtown Williamsport.'
