In Todd Strasser’s The Good War, there’s a new after school club at Ironville Middle School. Ms. Peterson is starting a club for students to play The Good War, a video game based on World War II. They are divided into two teams–Axis and Allies–and they will be simulating a war they know nothing about…yet. One team will win. but what starts out as friendly competition soon shocks them all when someone takes the game too far. Can an after-school club change the way the students see each other…and how they see the world?
