The True History of Lyndie B HawkinsY during the Vietnam war and why he “came home different” or why her Ma stays locked in her room for days or how come they had to sell the house Lyndie grew up in and move in with her strict grandparents And Lyndie’s grandma Lady is determined to mold Lyndie into a “nice” southern girl who knows how to keep uiet about family secrets. Lyndon Baines Hawkins lives in Love's Forge Tennessee and is surrounded by history She is about to turn twelve and has a burning need to get the historical details right She takes seriously the uote by Harry Truman inside the Love's Forge History Museum that says The only thing new in the world is the history you don't know The location allows for exploration of the Civil War and the time setting 1985 expands the scope to include the Vietnam War as Lyndie and many of her friends are the children of veterans One of her favorite people is Mrs Dooley the librarian who helps her look up primary sources Since this is the 80's the research is done primarily through books and microfiche No Google searches here This book not only addresses the family strife from dealing with the fallout of serving in Vietnam but also takes on the foster system and manages to include some kickboxing knitting and baking I loved it and highly recommend itThe thing is I say desperately you can never be totally sure of the effect what you do or say will have If you're in the middle of something you can't see how it all fits together You never know until after when you look back That's the whole point of learning history Lyndon Baines Hawkins
