Starred Review, Kirkus Reviews, August 15, 2010:
“The emotional journey is leavened with humor and a little romance, but it moves toward the conclusion with an inevitability that grabs and doesn’t let go. Every character contributes and brings a point of view that adds to a fuller picture of the personal consequences of war without being simplistically pro or anti. Powerful.”

Starred Review, Publishers Weekly, August 30, 2010:
“With exceptional sensitivity, Reinhardt (How to Build a House) chronicles a soldier’s troubling homecoming, in this timely novel told from his younger brother’s point of view . . . Reinhardt personalizes a soldier’s traumas in terms civilians can understand. Levi’s growing comprehension of Boaz’s internal turmoil is gracefully and powerfully evoked.”

Starred Review, Booklist, October 1, 2010:
“Reinhardt’s poignant story of a soldier coping with survivor’s guilt and trauma, and his Israeli American family’s struggle to understand and help, is timely and honest.”
