About this title:

Synopsis: A Boy at War Adam's from a military family, so when they move to Honolulu in the fall of 1941, it's nothing new. Adam's father, a navy lieutenant, expects a lot from him. He inspects his room for dust, checks his sheets for wrinkles, and certainly doesn't want him befriending Davi, a Japanese American classmate. But when Adam defies his father and goes fishing with Davi, he finds himself on the front lines of the Pearl Harbor attack-an event that will change Adam's relationship with his father forever. A Boy No More As Adam's family tries to put their lives together after the tragedy they witnessed at Pearl Harbor, Adam is confronted by terrible questions of loyalty and friendship. His friend Davi's father has been taken to Manzanar, a Japanese internment camp. Can Adam overcome powerful anti-Japanese sentiment and his own feelings of rage against the Japanese for the death of his father, to help a friend who has also lost his parent? This powerful and moving story examines how these moral dilemmas shape Adam and force him to abandon childhood forever. Heroes Don't Run At only 17, Adam is ready to enlist and fight the war that claimed the life of his father. Determined to join the Marines with or without his mother's permission, he survives the brutalities of boot camp only to find himself at the bloodiest battle of the Pacific theater-Okinawa. Written in short chapters, with letters to family and friends, this book depicts the mind-numbing slog of service as well as the genuine terror of battle without minimizing or glorifying the violence.
