"The best Vietnam War novels yet for this age range." -Kirkus Reviews

When Rudi is drafted by the US Marine Corps, no one expects him to succeed. To everyone's surprise, however, Rudi turns out to be a very good soldier. That's because Rudi has decided to live by a simple code: He will follow orders. No matter how big or small. No matter how frightening.

But will following orders be enough to keep Rudi alive? And if he does survive the war, will his best friends even recognize him on the other side?

CHRIS LYNCH is the author of numerous acclaimed books for middle-grade and teen readers, including the Cyberia series and the National Book Award finalist Inexcusable. He teaches in the Lesley University creative writing MFA program, and divides his time between Massachusetts and Scotland.
