"Instead of going to college like his parents want him to, 18-year-old Robin Perry from Harlem (nephew of Richie Perry, the main character in author Walter Dean Myers' Fallen Angels) enlists in the army after 9/11 because he wants "to do something, to stand up for [his] country." Soon he is in Iraq as part of the Civil Affairs Battalion, a supposedly low-risk unit of men and women tasked with building trust between U.S. troops and the Iraqi people. But as they are increasingly involved in violence, Robin ("Birdy") and his fellow soldiers soon find their definition of "winning" ever more elusive and the war more random, confusing, and horrifying. This powerful book "takes readers behind the headlines to the everyday life of a soldier" (Horn Book)."

Very good! Slightly different from Myers' Vietnam war novel but still intereseting. Hopefully it will be made into a movie.
