Review: FALLEN ANGELS by Walter Dean Myers

A Bookshelf Monstrosity recently read and reviewed Fallen Angels by Walter Dean Myers for the 2010 Vietnam War Reading Challenge.  Check out this snippet:

Richie sees the dead boys being burned: “They were me. We wore the same uniform, were the same height, had the same face. They were me, and they were dead.” Although this book obviously doesn’t glorify war, it doesn’t make the judgment call of condemning it, either.

Living to Think also read and reviewed Fallen Angels by Walter Dean Myers for the challenge.  Check out this excerpt:

Fallen Angels succeeded wonderfully for me. The story of a Harlem teenager who couldn’t attend college so opting for the Army showed a maturity I appreciated in a young adult book. Yes, this book is “classified” as YA fiction. However, like the best of any fiction, it grabs your attention and takes you for a ride.
