Summary
Years after the Vietnam war, in which her mother served as a nurse and her father died, twelve-year-old Lisa struggles with the typical problems of early adolescence, combined with the painful ordeal of also having to cope with her mother's post-trauma nightmares.
Amazon.com description: Product Description: Lightning pierces the nighttime sky. Then a scream.Twelve-year-old Lisa Grey jumps out of bed and runs to her mother's room. It's hard enough to deal with school--her first dance, her first crush, and studying the war that took away her father--without worrying about her mother's nightmares. The war has been over for years, but experiences as a nurse in Vietnam still haunt Lisa's mother. Can Lisa help her mother find the peace that will let their family heal? Lost in the War is a poignant story about love and loss, courage and resilience, that will touch the reader long after its soaring, unforgettable finale.
