Annotation:
Francis Joseph Cassavant has just returned to the United States after serving in World War II. A war hero at 18, Francis received the Silver Star for the bravery he displayed in protecting others from an exploding hand grenade, an action which blew off most of his face. Still, Francis wonders if what he did was really an act of heroism. In his heart of hearts, he feels he just fell on the grenade accidentally. Tortured by personal memories and what he witnessed in the war, Francis decides to seek revenge against his childhood hero, a man who also received a Silver Star for bravery, and who Francis believes destroyed his life.
Author Bio
Robert Cormier
Before becoming a writer for young adults, Robert Cormier worked as a journalist and wrote three novels for adults. He is well known for his young adult novels, which focus on such realistic themes as murder, sex, and terminal illness. Many of his works, such as THE CHOCOLATE WAR, feature teenage characters faced with situations where they refuse to compromise their ideals. Readers are not guaranteed a happy ending in novels by Cormier, but rather a realistic ending--the ending that he feels is dictated by the story.
