On April 7, 2005, an IED blast in Afghanistan alters the course of Jeremy Merkin's life forever. Still grieving the loss of his best friend, who was killed by the explosion, and nursing the physical and psychological wounds of the war, Jeremy returns home to find that nothing has changed, and yet everything is different. He begins a career as a high school teacher, but memories of the war, the physical limitations caused by his injuries and a criminal accusation threaten to end his teaching career before it's even begun.

May be the best novel I have read in the last few years.

This was such an amazing, touching, inspiring, and heartfelt book. I could not put it down. It made me laugh out loud, it made me cry, and it made me speechless.

It is a glimpse into the lives of soldiers when they return from 'over there'. It is a look into the mind of someone who tries his best to reconcile and come to terms with the horrors he took part in and witnessed. Highly recommend this book, and I plan to take out all his other books as well!
