It's 1945, and the world is in the grip of war.

Hideki lives with his family on the island of

Okinawa, near Japan. When the Second World

War crashes onto his shores, Hideki is drafted to fight

for the Japanese army. He is handed a grenade

and a set of instructions: Don't come back until you've killed

an American soldier.

Ray, a young American Marine,

has just landed on Okinawa. This is Ray's first-ever battle,

and he doesn't know what to expect -- or if he'll

make it out alive. All he knows that the enemy is everywhere.

Hideki and Ray each fight their way across the island, surviving

heart-pounding ambushes and dangerous

traps. But then the two of them collide

in the middle of the battle... And choices they make in that single

instant will change everything.

Alan Gratz, New York Times bestselling author of Refugee, returns

with this high-octane story of how fear and war tear us apart,

but how hope and redemption tie us together.
