This was an OK juvenile book that dealt with some pretty heavy issues. Steve's older brother has returned from serving in World War II and is suffering from a major case of Post Traumatic Stress Disorder. Of course, in those days, nobody was really aware of PTSD and Steve feels that he has to lie about his brother so that the other kids don't make fun of Steve. Besides dealing with PTSD, this book also deals a lot with the ramifications of lying and doing things that you shouldn't do just to impress others. Over all, it was an ok book but pretty slow in parts. Maybe if I were the age of the books target audience, it would have gripped me more, but for me it fell kind of flat.
