Book Title
In Country
Bobbie Ann Mason
In the summer of 1984, the war in Vietnam comes home to Samantha Hughes, whose father was killed there before she was born. All she has is a picture of him as a young soldier, and as Sam begins to grapple with the challenges of her own adolescent years, she also finds herself confronting the desire and need to know more about her father and what happened to him and the other American soldiers who served in Vietnam. Today's students will relate to Sam and her desire to leave her small town for the bigger world versus the pull of a loving boyfriend and family. Her need to confront the controversies and horrors of war and its impact on soldiers and the families they leave behind makes In Country a meaningful book for the current generation of students.
