Willie Bea Mills comes from a large, close-knit family, with her aunts, uncles, grandparents, cousins all around her. As the story begins on Oct. 30, 1938, I won’t be spoiling anything if I note that the title refers to Orson Welles’ infamous War of the Worlds broadcast.

Willie Bea Mills comes from a large, close-knit family, with her aunts, uncles, grandparents, cousins all around her. As the story begins on Oct. 30, 1938, I won’t be spoiling anything if I note that the title refers to Orson Welles’ infamous War of the Worlds broadcast.

But, in essence, although the broadcast plays a part, it isn’t the essence of this good-natured novel from the Newbery Award-winning author Virginia Hamilton. Instead, a glimpse into the lives of middle-class African-Americans in rural Ohio in the waning days of the Great Depression proves the real pleasure in reading this charming novel. While so many novels center on the abject poverty on the scale of Bud, Not Buddy and The Grapes of Wrath, I was surprised at what life was like for the middle class: Even the Mills family doesn’t have an indoor bathroom, although they have a water pump at their kitchen sink, and store-bought costumes for Halloween is beyond their father’s pocketbook. Race relations in rural Ohio in 1938 seem more advanced than today’s.

It’s my first Hamilton novel, but certainly not my last.

I received this free copy from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.

This is such a cute story that will appeal to readers of all ages. Willie Bea is a young protagonist who captures your heart from the very beginning. She is so strong for being only twelve, and always puts other's needs before her own which makes her so endearing. I'm so glad I got the chance to read a treasure that I think all kids should read.

Xenia, Ohio, in 1938, Willie bea, the main character, a very responsible, caring and right character and her family falls into a panic situation recieved by a famous radio broadcast about martians landing on earth. It's a pretty good story, written by the famous author, Virginia Hamilton.

It starts really slow, but it gets better, until you can't get off it.

I liked it, especially the part from the situation where Aunt Leah started to panic after recieving the news from the radio broadcast.

The end is really good, good conclusion, I'd say. A great reccomendation to the people who likes science fiction.

If it wasn't written like how Virginia has written this book, I think that the book would have been much more boring. She gave information on the book little by little so that I could drop the book until I finished it. It gave me lots of things I could think about and go over. It gave me thoughts and imaginations on how people went hysterical during the radio play. I liked it how each character was so different from each other. Some of them were completely opposite of each other and others were unique. I thought it was a good book and especially liked the conclusion. It was a good ending to the story.

I like the way it goes. It is in the year 1938. It starts out slow, yes. But then it starts to get better, and better, and better. Then you get interested in it. There is this girl named Willie Bea, as you can guess from the title. She has all her cousins and aunts and uncles coming in from all over for a reunion. I especially like the ending. It is about a chapter or so. I think you'll agree once you get that far.

It was a great book because I like science fiction. I recomend this book to people in grades 5-8.
Willie Bea is a spunky character, also called 'Will Bea" by Bay Brother. Willie Bea extremly dislikes her bratty cousin, Little. All she wants is to be liked by her rich aunt Lucy. But in the end she gets a lot more than she expected.
