Dean Hughes, Author . Simon Pulse , 4.99 ISBN (230p) ISBN 978

Two idealistic teens—one American, the other German—insist on hurrying into battle during WWII and become disillusioned. "The premise proves more compelling than the somewhat uneven plotting and character development," wrote PW, "but many readers will appreciate this realistically harrowing depiction of the pointlessness of war." Ages 12-up. (May)
