Sunrise Over Fallujah by Walter Dean Myers

If you want to know the life of a modern soldier, then read Sunrise Over Fallujah. In Sunrise Over Fallujah, you get to see what Robin Perry goes through in Iraq. Robin, like his uncle, joins the army as a part of the 422nd Civil Affairs unit. Upon arriving in Iraq, Robin meets new friends. When some of his squad mates get killed, he suddenly realizes he’s fighting for his life.

Sunrise Over Fallujah is a great book for anyone who likes war novels. Walter Dean Myers really gives a great perspective on war. You know at all times what Robin thinks, says, and feels.
