Great book.

Review by revik

Its a great book but also a little hard to read right now with what is going on, and would recommend for a little older audiences. Overall, great book.

Review by Jewel21

This book was very interesting and it shows how life was like at the brink of war for the brother of a soldier. I like potatoes.

Amazing book

Review by SG0203

It is a little scary closer to the end and is about the six day war against Jordan and Egypt. Daring and loving boy is the main person.
