“Nonsensational and accurate, Bruchac’s tale is quietly inspiring.” School Library Journal
“Telling his story to his grandchildren, Ned relates his experiences in school, military training, and across the Pacific….With its multicultural themes and well-told WWII history, this will appeal to a wide audience.” Kirkus Reviews
