Two years after being airlifted out of war-torn Vietnam, Matt Pin is haunted: by bombs, by the family - and terrible secret - he left behind. Now, inside a caring adoptive home in the United States, a series of events force him to choose between silence and candor, blame and forgiveness, fear and freedom.

This is a 'book in verse' the narrator did a great job reading and it was nice to listen to, he even sang one part that was a song.
The story was very well written and my son loved the tie in with baseball.
It almost made me cry. It was so real life.
Great book for my 6th grader who loves baseball and interested in history and war. It did leave you hanging and I wonder if there is a second book. If there is we will get it since we are wondering what happens next.
