I got this book to help some children who were assigned this as their summer reading. What I got was more than I expected, insight and understanding. I have a friend with an autistic child and I have learned to work with him and accept his rules (before the book). In return I have felt the love and joy of a friendship with my young friend.
The book was written at a level that the children I was helping would understand. It was written very well and if the readers will allow it, the book will change their perspectives of others. It will allow them to be less judgmental and less concerned with what others think of them and their friendships. I applaud the author and her work and hope that many people will read and appreciate this work.
I heard an interview with Marcus Lattrell and from that day said I have to read his story! I am humbled by his service and sacrifice. He and his team are modern version of the heros who fought for and founded this country. The book was very well written and the story was inspiring and sad all at the same time. I would want the families of those fallen team members to know that I honor their loved one's sacrifice and I will never take for granted the freedom we have as a result of their sacrifice. The only other comment I would make would be to parents with children reading, there is some profanity in the book.
