Diary of a Citizen
R. K. Cooper, III, author
Chaos. Death. Confusion. That night 12 years ago from the start of the war is one of David's first memories. Now he walks into class after each attack wondering how many of his friends will not be there. When the teacher calls roll, every answer is a sigh of relief, every silent moment a fitting tribute to the life now lost. His only escape is the woods that surround his city. The day after a ruthless bombing by their enemies, David is desperate to escape into his refuge. Thinking that he is taking his little brother and friends on a fun getaway to share in his place of refuge, they soon find danger lurking at every turn.
