Soldier Boy, reality

by AnchorageSchools (WorldCat user published about 2 weeks ago) Very Good Permalink

Soldier Boy by K. Hutton is a shocking yet refreshing tale of what really goes on in the dark corners of the world.  It is sad, memorable and a truly amazing book to read.  HP, ASD Middle School Student
