Not all victims were soldiers... Lieutenant Rebecca Phillips went to Vietnam as a nurse, to heal and give comfort, and maybe to find answers. The war had torn her family apart and she wanted to know why. But there were no answers for her in Vietnam -- only more questions.

When Rebecca returns to the U.S., her war still isn't over. For only when she's home is she able to confront the horrific realities she experienced during her tour of duty. To piece her life back together, Rebecca travels across the country in search of hope, of forgiveness... of the way home. Named an ALA Best Book for Young Adults.

From Publishers Weekly *STARRED REVIEW*:
"Opening in an Army emergency room in Vietnam during the Tet Offensive, this novel gives readers an unforgettable glimpse of the everyday carnage of war... Inextricable from the story's anti-war theme is its fiercely compassionate loyalty to the people who served in Vietnam."

From Booklist:
"White's terse, abrupt style clearly reflects Rebecca's cynicism and war-damaged psyche, and the portrayal of her search for healing and wholeness is beautifully and believably rendered."
