  Fallen Angels by Walter Dean Myers

Review by: Charlie B.
Illinois, Grade 7

It appeals to male and females.

Here is a book review on it:
It may sound okay on the radio and on the newspapers, but the other side of the world isnít so pretty. In the book Fallen Angels by Walter Dean Myers you will meet a young man in Vietnam named Richie Perry who comes from Harlem, New York. You will see his hardships while he serves in the Vietnam War along with his friends Peewee, Johnson, Lobel, and Brunner. After seeing what it is really like, all he wants to do is to go back home to his mom and his little brother Kenny.
The book contains thought of Perry before and after he goes on a mission with his other squad-mates. There are many points where he can be in action and where he can reflect afterwards. This leads you to believe that the characters are actually real people and that you are in the fight with them. The book even has a few surprises.
Iím sure this book is mostly for boys, but girls can read it too without a problem; due to the fact that there are many characters with different attitudes and personalities. There is some coarse language here and there, so it may not suitable for young teens that donít get their parents to approve. Overall this book is a good read for anyone looking for an exciting book.
