it was ok

This book was just okay. I'm hoping there will be a 2nd one to let us know how it all ends up, because as is, I didn't really care for this. I liked the character of David but Penna was not one my favorites. Also, I think there were almost TOO many characters with not enough developement of them. I like the idea of the book, but seemed to have too many themes running through it. Is it about war/deployment/love or reuniting family/family issues or finding friends and a life of your own? I was hoping this book would be more like "Something Like Normal" by Trish Doller. I may change this review if there is a 2nd book but as of now I regret reading it.
