Abstract:

In North Carolina, during World War II, two girls--Lucy Brown and Allie Bert Tucker--decide to solve crimes just like Nancy Drew. Their chance comes when a man goes missing from town. Before they can solve the case, a Nazi prisoner-of-war camp opens, and more men go missing. Together the girls embark on a journey to discover if we ever really know who the enemy is.

"A Southern story of friendship forged by books and bees, when the timeless troubles of growing up meet the murky shadows of World War II. Deep in the tobacco land of North Carolina, nothing's the same since the boys shipped off to war and worry took their place. Thirteen-year-old Lucy Brown is curious and clever, but she can't make sense of it all. Then Allie Bert Tucker comes to town, an outcast with a complicated past, and Lucy believes that together they can solve crimes. Just like her hero, Nancy Drew. That chance comes when a man goes missing, a woman stops speaking, and an eccentric gives the girls a mystery that takes them beyond the ordinary. Their quiet town, seasoned with honeybees and sweet tea, becomes home to a Nazi prisoner-of-war camp-and more men go missing. The pair set out to answer the big question: do we ever really know who the enemy is? Lush with Southern atmosphere, All The Little Hopes, is the story of two girls growing up while war creeps closer, blurring the difference between what's right, what's wrong, and what we know to be true"--
