Matt is a child survivor of the Vietnam War who has been adopted by American parents. However, he still encounters much animosity from peers while dealing with the uncertainties of his background and emotional fallout from the war.

Told in verse, it is a little more difficult to comprehend exactly what is happening, especially at the beginning, but once i got into it, it flowed very easily and smoothly. Vocab level is pretty low but skill level is fairly high due to the complexities of the issues, etc.
