Wow. WOW. Really enjoyed this book - felt a whole myriad of emotions, all throughout the story. Most memorable scene, without a doubt, was when Hayley's dad Andy walks out of the house in his dress uniform, ready to head to the school for Veteran's Day. Completely moving, and wonderfully powerful. Made me actually catch, and hold, my breath. This book is a ride, from beginning to end. Read it all in one day, and will whole-heartedly recommend. As far as the writing and dialogue goes the book gets 1 star. Such lame "filler" material. This book depicts a very small narrow view of PTSD but the fact that the book even touches on real aspects of PTSD kept me reading. The Author gives a fairly accurate description of what living with someone who suffers from combat related post traumatic stress can be like. For this purpose it may be helpful to others who love and care for a combat veteran to read.

very serious and heavy reading for young adult, but worth the read.
