Survive the war Outlast the enemy Stay aliveThat's what Henry Forrest has to do When he lies about his age to join the Marines Henry never imagines he'll face anything worse than his own father's cruelty But his unit is shipped off to the Philippines where the heat is unbearable the conditio. So It didn’t really take me this long to read I put it down got busy then picked it up again This is a detailed and well told account of life as a POW during WW2 The main character Henry is one to whom the reader can easily relate and the narrative voice is definitely written for a middle school reader I’d rate it five stars except that the POV shifts randomly in the very beginning from first person to third person for no apparent reason The rest of the book is from third person with the exception of the final uarter of the book Not really sure what the author was trying to do here and am surprised Scholastic editors didn’t pick this up prior to publishing
