Scott Fieldsabout this book: It was the last days of innocence; the last days before a place called Pearl Harbor ushered in the horrors of war. Addie Watson was living the American dream in the small town of Millersburg, Iowa. Known for her sometimes bizarre and destructive inventions, Addie was warned, repeatedly, that she was forbidden to invent even one more device, and, yet, it was that one more device that led her to a toe-to-toe meeting with Adolph Hitler.
I have always liked feel-good stories and always wanted to write a story for teenage girls; thus, the birth of THE LAST DAYS OF SUMMER. Addie Watson was a teenage girl who was obsessed with inventing different things. Unfortunately, not all of her inventions were that successful. She, in fact, burned down the local post office and blew up a barn. With those disasters to her credit, the townspeople regarded her as a misfit. So, when she reported that she had detected Adolph Hitler in their vicinity via her latest invention, nobody believed her.
THE LAST DAYS OF SUMMER is a 56,000 word novel that explores the innocence of small town life and the stubborn determination of a young girl when faced with an incredible challenge. It is fast-paced and written with the Young Adult readers in mind.
