This book was amazing! I just cannot get the story out of my head. It is about a soldier that stepped on a land mine and so now he is missing most of his face. It tells about the challenges of a young man coming back from war, and really having lost everything. At parts I really wanted to shut the book because it was painful to think about how it would be to be without a nose, raw cheeks and flaps for ears.

This book really deals with some real situations, and Cormier does not censor any of it. So don't pick up this book unless you are willing to deal with a pretty intense story line. And watch out for the ending-- it gets ya!

Warning this book contains: violence, hard subjects like rape, war, and vengeance.
