Purple Hearts by Michael Grant
Third and final instalment of this critically acclaimed young adult alternative historical series that began with Front Lines and Silver Stars It's 1944, and it feels to everyone like the war will never end. Rio Richlin, Frangie Marr and Rainie Shulterman have all received accolades, been 'heroes', earned promotion - in short, they've all done 'enough' to allow them to leave this nightmare and go home. But they don't. D-Day, June 6th 1944. On that day, many still doubted the American soldier. By June 7th no one did. Michael Grant has lived an exciting, fast-paced life. He moved in with his wife Katherine after only twenty-four hours. He has co-authored over 160 books for teenagers, young adults and adults, including the bestselling GONE series, but promises that everything he writes is like nothing you've ever read before. He considers the Front Lines series to be his best work yet.
