The fourth book in Cynthia Voigt’s acclaimed Tillerman Series, where 1960s Vietnam beckons Bullet Tillerman.
Bullet Tillerman is a loner, with little interest in anyone or anything except running. But this is the 1960s, and with racial war at home and the Vietman War abroad, Bullet’s beliefs have to change.
A sad, beautiful story about war, racism and tragedy, building on characters already loved and admired from the first book in the Tillerman series, Homecoming.
