The Journal of Scott Pendleton Collins, by Walter Dean Myers

"The perfect pick for realistic fiction lovers. It takes place during World War II from the perspective of an American soldier - Scott P. Collins. It may not be the right story for readers who adore fantasy because this book means business!" Reviewed by Haejin, Jamestown Middle School

"Writing in May_ 1944, 17-year-old Collins has no inkling of the massive military offensive he is about to take part in. Myers captures nicely the shift from the fraternity and the boredom of life on the base to the terror and confusion of D-Day. The action and imagery are explicit but not exploitative . . ."
