In honor of Veteran's Day on Sunday, November 11, I'm running a short review series called YA on the Homefront. I'll be looking at three recently published YA contemporary books that feature stories about characters who are serving in the military.
Thursday I featured If I Lie by Corrine Jackson -- you can read my review here.
Today, I'm looking at Personal Effects by E. M. Kokie and Something Like Normal by Trish Doller. Each of these books are narrated by a male character. Both characters have fathers they can't relate to, and both are coming to terms with the death of someone close to them.
