TOUGH CHOICES: A Story of the Vietnam War

"You're just a killer hired by Uncle Sam."
That's what the protesters tell Samantha's brother Mitch when he comes home from Vietnam. How could they ruin his homecoming? Samantha never wants to think about Vietnam again, and now these awful anti-war people -- including her older brother, Emmett -- are bringing the war closer than ever.
As Samantha watches the effects of war on Mitch and the rest of her family, she realizes that the issues are not so simple. The war is far from over, and everyone has tough choices ahead.

Review:

"Antle's sensitive portrayal of the effects the Vietnam War has on one American family provides vivid insight into a turbulent historical period." Booklist
