The Boys Start The War (1993)

By: Phyllis Reynolds Naylor

The Hatford brothers are devastated to learn that their best friends, the Benson brothers, are moving away from Buckman, West Virginia. But when the Malloy sisters move into the Benson house, the Hatford brothers concoct a scheme to drive the Malloy sisters away and bring the Bensons back.

I’ve read this book series three times over. Naylor is one of my favorite authors of all time. This reading, however, was more for business than pleasure. But I enjoyed it just as much as I did back in the day when I read it the first time. The characters are brilliant, the setting perfectly nostalgic, and the pranks hilarious. Definitely keep this series alive and pass it on to the children in your life. They’ll thank you for it.
