This is a charming book with a lot of layers. On the surface, it seems to be a bildungsroman, about a high school boy who ponders his fate in the face of the Vietnam War. It is also a rumination on fear of the other, family, and the meaning of life. I wish I could tell you about the ending so you would be driven to read this book. Suffice it to say it took my breath away and brought tears to my eyes. The whole book jumped to a deeper level of meaning when I read the last page. Great book. Highly recommended.
