The Feester Filibuster

Front Cover
Eakin Press, 2002 - Juvenile Fiction - 236 pages
That's how John Alan Feester sums up what happened in The Rachel Resistance. In The Feester Filibuster, which tells his side of the story, John Alan shows he's not a spy at all-even though he does a lot of spying to prove it. Spies may or may not lurk in the shadows, but mysteries still abound in Apache, Oklahoma. A package holding an angel begins to tell the untold story behind John Alan's mother. The previously silent Simon Green begins talking and can't seem to stop -- and in the process reveals a secret about himself. And everyone keeps watch on whether blue stars turn to gold in the windows of residents like Mrs. Snow. The impact of World War II on a small town continues in this poignant and often hilarious story by award-winning author Molly Griffis.
