Ever since his brother T.J. was killed in Iraq, Matt feels like he's been sleepwalking through life: failing classes, getting into fights, and avoiding his dad's lectures about following in his brother's footsteps. T.J.'s gone, but Matt can't shake the feeling that if only he could get his hands on his brother's stuff from Iraq, he'd be able to make sense of his death. As Matt searches for answers about T.J.'s death, he faces a shocking revelation about T.J.'s life, one that suggests he may not have known T.J. as well as he thought. What he learns challenges him to stand up to his father, honor his brother's memory, and take charge of his own life.
