No Surrender Soldier by Christine Kohler*
No Surrender Soldier isn't very good. It is very, very robotic like. It felt more like a documentary than a book. The soldier, malnourished and a Japanese soldier, seems very unrealistic. He wants to stay hidden, but almost kills a dog, and steals a baseball. I think that the boy, Kiko, choosing a butcher's knife over a machete is sort of unrealistic. I don't recommend this book for anyone.
