Review: SHOOTING THE MOON by Francis O’Roark Dowell

Biblio File recently read and reviewed Shooting the Moon by Francis O’Roark Dowell for the Vietnam War Reading Challenge.  Check out this excerpt:

This is a short, slight book. It’s quiet, but it stays with you. Not a lot happens. It’s summer, Jamie plays cards and develops film. She flashes back to when her brother enlisted up until the day he shipped out.
