Summary note:
"[The book] examines the adolescents who attended the pseudonymous "Armyville High School" between 2006 and 2010 and how they were affected by their parents' involvement in the Canadian military mission in Afghanistan. The book shows how the "Armyville" school district was unprepared to offer an effective response in support of its students."-- Provided by publisher.
