My Dear Phebe
A Young Adult Historical Adventure
by Janet Elaine Smith

A war was coming! Ten-year-old Phebe Irvine was just plain scared. It was all anyone talked about. But war didn't really mean much to Phebe; it was something a long ways away from Sault Ste. Marie, Michigan. The letters from her Uncle James, who lived near Gettysburg, Pennsylvania, brought it much closer to home. And then her best friend, Sarah Tuttle, had to say goodbye to her father, who left to join the army. In MY DEAR PHEBE, children learn how war affects everyone, even if there were no battles nearby. Phebe learns how to deal with the fears, anxieties and pain caused by the war, as well as having personal problems in her own family. In the face of whatever terrors face today's youth, they will learn to cope with them by visiting another war, the Civil War, enabling them to better handle today's problems and threats. MY DEAR PHEBE is based on the actual letters Phebe Irvine received from her Uncle James. A "must read" for young adults everywhere, as well as an excellent source book for teachers, libraries and parents.

What would you do if you found out you were a another world?




What do a prostitute, an abused child, a disillusioned minister, a Vietnam Vet and a homosexual have in common?  These and many others find their lives changed when they meet Storm and his companion, an amethyst-eyed dog named Maggie.


As you follow Storm on his journey to discover his true identity, you will meet many of society’s forgotten people.  You will laugh, cry and get angry—whatever the emotion, you will feel deeply.


When Storm realizes who he is and why he is here, the world is completely changed and not one soul remains untouched.  Upon closing the covers of this book, you will see the world around you in a far different light and find yourself wondering—is it really fiction
