Lost in the War is about a girl named Lisa and her mom was in the Vietnam War as a nurse. Lisa¿s father had been killed in the same war. It is 10 years later and Lisa mom is still having horrible night mares. Lisa is scared that her mom is never going to be back to normal. Lisa mom has never told any that she was in the war to any one but her family and some one finds out and she goes and talks to Lisa¿s 7th grade class is learning about Vietnam War. Do you think that this will help her mother or make thing worse. I am a middle school student and I picked this book to read in one of my classes. Lost in the War is a good book to read on your spar time. Lost in the War could tell you about how some families might be feeling about the war in Iraq, because it tells you how people feel when there is a war going on. I would rate lost in the war a four out of five. I rate Lost in the War a four because I think the writer could have done a better job of telling the setting, because when you are reading the book you don¿t really always know the whole setting that they are talking about. But besides that I think that Lost in the War is a good book to read. So if you like theses kinds of books that tell you how other people are feeling then Lost in the War is a book for you.
lost in the war was an awesome book. if you like books that are gripping, jerky, sudden, and surprising, you will love this book. it will make you cry, gasp, and laugh
This book changed my life....now I'm happy again.
This book is a really good book for young adults . Most of you would be really satisfied with it. It is about a girl thats mom is still all depressed about the war. She was nurse and she saw many people die. she even saw her husband die. Its a really good story.
