Travis "Solo" Stephenson is on leave after a tour in Afghanistan. Although his room looks exactly like he left it, little things in his life are no longer the same. There's tension between his parents, his little brother "stole" his girlfriend and his car, and he just can't escape the nightmares and hallucinations of his best friend, Charlie, who was killed in action.
I was hooked after the first chapter. Every once in awhile I stumble upon a book like this. An honest character with real feelings & emotions.
A quick read with just over 200 pages. Sometimes I really enjoy a shorts book that doesn't skimp on the plot or depth.
Realistic (I think) portrayal of a young Marine
