Somebody, Please Tell Me Who I Am by Harry Mazer****

Somebody, Please Tell Me Who I Am is all about Ben, a boy who's going to war without telling anyone. As he's in Iraq, an IED (which is a type of hidden bomb) blows up his squad's Humvee, injuring almost everyone fatally. Ben survives, but what has happened to him, his squad, and most importantly, his memory?

This one is definitely a book for boys who would like a short read and a bit of action. It is a read for anyone who is going to war because it is so realistic. It shows dangers and other bad things that happen. War is brutal, and you will feel incredible sadness for Ben as he deals with the fallout.
