I would love a sequel to this book. I said it was good mainly because of the advice Ms. Schreck gives at the end of the novel on how to cope when a loved one is serving his/ her country.
I only wish she done something a little bit different with the main character Penna. I would love to find out if Linda and Isaac get together; and if David rethinks his decision about breaking up with Penna when he returns from Iraq.

Depressing. Oh my God, this book was so depressing! Realistic, I'm sure. But I was so sad by the end of it and **SPOILER (sort of)** the ending was left open, so I have no idea what happens. It was just a totally depressing story and there was no point in the end because I have no idea what happens to them!
