“After the Vietnam war, Matt gets adopted and plays baseball with a coach prone to death, and a revenge seeker.
“Matt is from Vietnam. But he has moved to America. He plays baseball with a coach who might be dying. This book is a good book. I would give it an 8 out of 10. Matt shows that whether you are from a foreign country or not you can still be successful.”Notre Dame 9 Ezra wrote this review Wednesday, January 25, 2012.

“"Two years after being airlifted out of war-torn Vietnam, Matt Pin is haunted: by bombs that fell like dead crows, by the family--and the terrible secret--he left behind. Now, inside a caring adoptive home in the United States, a series of profound events force him to choose between silence and.."
This book is beautifully written and will tug at your heart. It is identified as a middle school book but readers of all ages have enjoyed it. Not only is this the personal story of a boy airlifted out of Vietnam at the end of the war, but it is our nation's story of "binding up our wounds" and trying to move on. I could read it again and again.”
