Product Details

Praise

“Cory Woodford longs to be considered brave like his grandfather, a World War I hero, and his father, currently a solider fighting in Europe in 1943….(t)hrough a series of dares and life-changing news and revelations, Cory grows to learn what it means to be a hero, also coming to understand that people are not always as they appear. This is a strong coming-of-age story that contains important truths for today’s readers…. A solid work of historical fiction that’s perfect to spark discussion.” — School Library Journal

“Jones…captures the absolutism with which Cory initially views the world… then deftly charts his journey to discovering that life has more shades of gray than he had realized. (n)ewcomer Whipple’s b&w comics sequences… help give readers a sense of the story’s wartime setting, though the questions Cory faces are just as relevant for readers today.” — Publishers Weekly

“A(n)…appealing historical tale with relevance to current events…” — Kirkus Reviews

“(A) moving period piece that explores heroism and the ghosts we all live with.” — Booklist
