On a summer day when no one can think of anything to do, "playing war" seems like the perfect way to spend the day to Luke and his friends — until they realize that their new friend, Sameer, has had more experience with war than any of his friends can imagine. Beckwith and Lyon offer a poignant look at real and imagined war from a child's point of view. Teachers with refugees may find this an effective bridge for discussion.
