An extraordinary story written completely in verse.
Two years after being airlifted out of Vietnam in 1975, Matt Pin is haunted by the terrible secret he left behind, and now, in a loving adoptive home in the United States, a series of profound events forces him to confront his past.
Words cannot describe the emotions I felt as I read this book. It is so easy to feel what you feel, but sometimes you have to pull yourself outside of a situation and see things from other people's perspectives.
Two of the passages that struck me most profoundly were these:
You shouldn't wait
to thank people
for the good they do.
Words are messy,
words are all you've got
to show what matters most.
