Shooting the Moon

This book was written at a lower level content wise it's more 12-15 year-olds.

Jamie Dexter and her brother TJ have grown up full-fledge army. With their father the Colonel being all about service to your country. TJ and Jamie have grown up knowing exactly what they want to do with their lives. When TJ enlists to join Veitnam Tensions and Emothions are high in the Dexter house, but when TJ's first letter reaches home, it's not even a letter at all. I'll it is, are rolls of film. With this film fallowed by more, Jamie slowly has to rethink her intire life plan.

This book is again for 12-15 year-olds because Jamie does describe some of the pictures in detail. This book is similar to Cracker and All the Broken Pieces since they all deal with the same war. It is more like All the Broken Pieces because they both show how the war affected families in America.
