Jingo Fever

Because of her German-American heritage, twelve-year-old Adelle struggles with bullying during World War I.  Stuck in small town Ashland helping her mother care for her ailing uncle, Adelle longs to return to their home in Milwaukee, where things are at least familiar--even though the atmosphere is not much better.  She worries about her brother fighting for the Allies, feels like a coward when her peers make fun of Germans, but ultimately finds her own courage when events turn dangerous. The important issue of tolerance during war time is the backdrop for this coming of age story.
