"Tension escalates" - "Publishers Weekly" on "Brave Like My Brother"

Blurb about Brave Like My Brother in Publishers Weekly (6/13/16):

The structure of the booknamely, that most of the letters are from the older brother to the younger brotherwas designed to challenge kids to read context clues and employ deductive reasoning to fill in blanks, and teachers are reporting that this is indeed what is happening. One reader noted that the "gaps that only help recreate the war correspondence feel."

Thank you!
