★“Affectingly tracing Lucy’s struggles with her altered family, Holczer also credibly portrays the conflicting views on the war, from protestors to former vets. Well-grounded in its era and peopled by fully realized characters, the book is a resonant historical novel and a thoughtful exploration of how war and injury affect family, friendships, and individual growth.” —Publishers Weekly, starred review

“Lucy’s adjustments are thoughtfully examined, and her evolving efforts to stabilize her family in general, and her father in particular, are well craftedHolczer does a fine job of piercing the weight with bits of family levity, and with the ethereal beauty of the dragonflies—Milo’s obsession—that flit in and out of the story.” —Booklist

Lyrically written, the novel portrays the war’s corrosive, divisive impacts with compassion…A touching, memorable read that explores the costs, large and small, of an unpopular war.” Kirkus

“The novel introduces a nuanced view of the Vietnam War to readers…This is a quiet, tender work of historical fiction about grief, love, and learning to let go…A worthy addition to any middle grade collection.” —School Library Journal

Heartbreakingly poignant…the portrait of two children maturing with grace and tolerance is triumphant.” —Horn Book Magazine
