Description of this Electronic Book

From award-winning author Todd Strasser comes a gripping new novel that explores the struggles of war, the price paid by those who fight in them, and what it really means to be a hero. Jake Liddell is a hero. At least, that's what everyone says he is. The military is even awarding him a Silver Star for his heroic achievements-a huge honor for the son of a military family. Now he's home, recovering from an injury, but it seems the war has followed him back. He needs pills to get any sleep, a young woman is trying to persuade him into speaking out against military recruitment tactics, and his grandfather is already urging him back onto the battlefield. He doesn't know what to do; nothing makes sense anymore. There is only one thing that Jake knows for certain: he is no hero.
