If the oft-repeated claim that soldiers never feel so alive as they do in battle is true, then Pretty Much True shows that the ones they leave behind never feel so dead to the world as they do waiting for their loved ones.” - Lee Giguere, the Journal InquirerPretty Much True is about a young woman who has the misfortune of falling in love with a man who is shipped off to war. What I love about this story is that theres nothing the least bit sentimental or saintly about Mia, the narrator. Its a fascinating study of how the casualties of war extend far beyond the battlefield that is also incredibly funny in places. - Russell Rowland, author of In Open Spaces and High and Inside
