Will being back home help Andy's PTSD, or will his terrible memories drag him to the edge of hell, and drugs push him over? "The Impossible Knife of Memory" is Laurie Halse Anderson at her finest: compelling, surprising, and impossible to put down.
Laurie Halse Anderson's latest young adult novel, The Impossible Knife of Memory, follows 15-year-old Hayley and her dad, who suffers from PTSD after serving in Iraq. Anderson says the book draws on her own experience of growing up with a World War II veteran father who still struggles with his war memories. More at NPR.org
