Overview
After his older brother dies in Iraq, Matt makes a discovery that rocks his beliefs about strength, bravery, and honor in this page-turning debut.
Ever since his brother, T.J., was killed in Iraq, Matt feels like he s been sleepwalking through life failing classes, getting into fights, and avoiding his dad s lectures about following in his brother s footsteps. T.J. s gone, but Matt can t shake the feeling that if only he could get his hands on his brother s stuff from Iraq, he d be able to make sense of his death. But as Matt searches for answers about T.J. s death, he faces a shocking revelation about T.J. s life that suggests he may not have known T.J. as well as he thought. What he learns challenges him to stand up to his father, honor his brother s memory, and take charge of his own life. With compassion, humor, and a compelling narrative voice, E. M. Kokie explores grief, social mores, and self-discovery in a provocative first novel."
