What an awesome book! It really depicts the strongs feelings children and adults had about the Vietnam War. I also liked it because it was not one sided. The author included both major opinions about the war. The main character is very believable and real. If someone did not know a lot about the war, this would be a good book to read. I highly recommend it.
I grew up in the 60s, and this book reminded me of how controversial the Viet Nam war was back then.
Even though it's a Juvenile book, I enjoyed reading it. It had a surprise ending to me.
Wow, what a powerful book that showed personal growth in the characters! LOVED it!
