Sunrise Over Fallujah review Ø 0 Walter Dean Myers ¾ 0 review A powerful new novel about the heroics and horror of war from Walter Dean Myers whose bestselling book FALLEN ANGELS celebrates its 20th anniversaryOperation Irai Freedom that's the code name But the young men and women in the military's Civ. There s a blurb in the front of this book that I really agreed with Given the paucity of works on this war this is an important volume covering much ground and offering much insight Kirkus Review starred reviewThat s the biggest reason I bought it and put it on my goodreads shelf my physical shelf and my student shelf I ve kept it pretty high on my to read list but there are just so many books out thereThere are a lot of war books out there both for YA readers and readers in general A LOT of European Theater WWII books A lot of Holocaust books But there aren t a lot of high uality Ira books Vietnam books WWII Pacific Theater booksThere are also not nearly enough non racial YA black books out there There are plenty of books where a black protagonist is dealing with the effects of Jim Crow or escaping slavery or being the first baseball player basketball team Etc And there is an honored place for those books but if the opportunity cost is displacing stories where people of color are dealing with conflicts other than those of color we have a problem If we re only reading stories of one type of experience by a collective group it pigeonholes the group into that experienceSo the book gets double bonus points an under represented war an under represented protagonistGoing into this I didn t realize that Walter Dean Myers was black And I didn t realize that the protagonist was either I read him as white for a good portion of the book I had actually conflated Myers with Roland Smith probably because of the book Elephant Run Like a good author Myers wasn t overly descriptive in dealing with the physical appearance of his characters but he left pointed clues here and there For instance when Birdie was frisking some Irais I didn t like searching people I had been stopped on 136th Street once just outside the Countee Cullen Library but two plainclothes cops who had searched me I knew what it felt like Embarassed that I had to stand there with my hands in the air while strangers patted me down and went through my pockets humiliated because they were assuming power over me and I couldn t do a thing about itThere s uite a bit that ties in with my 7th grade social studies class Maybe than other books I ve thought about readingWe study The Middle East modern and ancient Mesopotamia gets brought up here Ziggurats 9 11 It s interesting how the book hints at WMDs and 9 11 being not pretense but part of the conversation The Tigris and Euphrates Modern political conflicts Democracies and dictatorshipsI ve almost convinced myself to get a classroom set with that last paragraph

Sunrise Over Fallujah review Ø 0 Walter Dean Myers ¾ 0 review Ters like the book's narrator Birdy a young recruit from Harlem who's uestioning why he even enlisted; Marla a blond tough talking wisecracking gunner; Jonesy a guitar playing bluesman who just wants to make it back to Georgia and open a clu. I read this book for two reasons First Meyers is an influential Young Adult author and I wanted to know if and how to recommend this book to any of my middle school students interested in war Second I admit that after 8 years and counting of military involvement in Ira it s all too easy to allow the societal moral and political ramifications of the war recede in my consciousness The novel helps humanize the issues and evokes in me of an emotional response than I get from the periodic news updatesNo novel can possess all virtues since some are mutually exclusive This novel trades the intimacy of being in a character s head for the objectivity of seeing everything around that character without any authorial intrusions The author kind of straps up a video camera to the head of the 1st person narrator That point of view character doesn t ever let us see himself though Like viewing a family photo album in which we never see the dad because he s holding the camera Ironically this main character is the person we end up knowing the least and caring about the least If the protagonist experiences a change across the novel it s very understated maybe a loss of innocence The up shot is that there wasn t much editorializing or sentimentality just a panoramic view of a military detachment s experiencesNo attempt is made to glamorize war This is not a jingoistic treatment Nor does the author seem to have an agenda in delegitimizing the war either It seems like a pretty even handed perspective No one is demonized in the book neither Americans nor Irais and the author tries to show the multi layered complexities of the situation The author lost a brother in Vietnam where he himself also served so when a character dies in this story there s an interesting blend of reverence for the sacrifice but also uestioning the premises upon which the rationale for the war is founded as well as existential uestions Overall not a heavy book but Meyers gives the subject the gravitas it deserves
