Losing your father at such a young age is hard on a family. Mike's dad has letters sent to his son that he has written before he was killed in the Afghan war. Very modern story dealing with recent events. Students will enjoy it.

Amazing story to the Birmingham Bombing. Adult content but would be ok for a higher level reader in high school.
