'And One For All' is a great book....but i had to read it for a book report. The only reason i didn't give it 5 stars was because if i didnt have to read it for a book report, i probably wouldn'y have read it. It is very well written and the ending is sad because of Wing. I would recommend this book to anyone who wants read about the vietnam war and how 3 teenagers deal with it.

And One for All is a wonderfully written book, that is a perfect read when learning about the Vietnam War because it is historically accurate. The author does not try to confuse the reader with an impressive vocabulary yet, still tells the story in an interesting way. This novel of excellent lenghth has happy, sad, shocking and touching emotions hidden within the words. And One for All is told through the eyes of the main character Geraldine (who loves to read). It has characters that everyone can relate to. Sam Daily who lives with his mother and is on his high school basketball team. Wing who does badly in school joins the marines. Dub, the little brother, Mom, the worrywart and Dad, the war veteran, wrap up this family. Overall, this book was one I would recommend to my friends. It ends in a delightful way that makes the whole book come together.
