KIRKUS REVIEW

A jungle encounter born of necessity fosters a tentative bond of trust between an American soldier, separated from his patrol and suspicious of everything Vietnamese, and Mi, at thirteen the oldest of four survivors of a bombed village. The author doesn't flinch from the obvious conclusion; the protagonists' subsequent death are pointless, shocking. . .and convincingly inevitable.
