Acclaimed author Walter Dean Myers presents a compelling novel that looks at America's occupation of Iraq through the eyes of those who live it first hand. Charged with building up relations between the U.S. military and the Iraqi people, a team of soldiers strives to make real connections and bridge the divide between two very different cultures. On constant guard from frequent suicide bomb attacks and deadly skirmishes, their situation reveals a tragic human toll.

"A young man on a quest for patriotism and honor reevaluates his life and his mission as the reality of war tests his idealism. As is the case in the real-life Operation Iraqi Freedom, the soldiers, both male and female, who come together to serve are from many parts of the United States, and JD Jackson does an especially good job characterizing each one. The story is told mostly through emails and letters home, as well as through dialogue, and Jackson performs each accent to provide the listener with instant recognition of who is speaking. Jackson's portrayal is haunting and memorable. Young adults, and adults as well, will appreciate the honest face of war conveyed by both author and narrator. D.L.M.
