Description
Information
Seventeen-year-old Sam Hughes lives in a small town in Kentucky. Her father was killed in Vietnam and her gentle, traumatized Uncle Emmett is suffering either from delayed acne or the effects of the dreaded Agent Orange.

Sam's growing awareness of the reality of the war, of the scars and the guilt, becomes an obsession when she falls in love with Tom at a Veteran's dance. Through her father's letters home and the journal he kept 'in country', Sam begins a journey of exploration that takes her across America and helps her come to terms with the past.

An eloquent and moving statement about the bigotry, paranoia and eccentricity of small-town America.
