Where Heroes Hide by Helen Recorvits

A touching story about heroismTen-year-old Junior wasn't even born when his father came home from World War II, but he knows his dad was a war hero. He'd been a pilot, and Junior would like to know more about his wartime experiences, but his dad doesn't want to talk about the war and gets mad whenever the subject comes up. Plenty of other things make him angry, too, especially Junior's best friend, Lenny, a polio survivor. Even though Lenny is no longer contagious, Junior's father doesn't want his son taking any chances. Junior knows better and he's not going to let his father ruin his summer or his friendship. His dad comes close to doing both until something happens that shows everyone where heroes hide.
