A nineteen year old soldier temporarily back from Iraq spends Thanksgiving day along with his “heroic” Army troop at the Thanksgiving Day Dallas Cowboys football game. The novel goes back and forth between their day and Billy’s history growing up and in the Army. A great first novel that really makes America look awful looking at war, politics, class and football.
PJH Rating: ****1/2
