(NewsUSA)PlowmanPlowman by Charles Bruckerhoff

At twelve, Stella Young and Hana Sanada, enrolled in the Stanton Academy for Humanity, discover the wartime journals of their great-grandfathers, who served in WWII, and a wartime journal of Stella’s grandfather, who served in Vietnam. Now, many years after the wars, the girls begin turning the journals into a book-length manuscript.

Their thoughts about the book’s themes change abruptly. Stella’s father was an infantry captain, serving in Afghanistan. One evening, army officers arrived at her home to inform Olivia, her mother, and Stella that their beloved husband and father had been killed.

The girls research the deeply troubling “wrong wars” that the American government has entered. Now adults, Stella and Hana size up what had gone so wrong with American government, its military, and society and embark on a mission to restore law and order, honor, morality, and integrity to the country.
