Teens: Prisoner of War

Review By: Julia Li


Prisoner of War is an amazing and very interesting historical-fiction book. It shows how the main character, Henry Forrest, lies his way into the US marines and survives the harsh reality of a world war II POW camp. While still being a fun read, it gives insight on how the marines never give up. Along with showing Henry's journey with the USA Marines, it shows his journey of finding strength at the hardest of times. But through this journey he goes through many hard obstacles and loses friends, possessions, and allies.
