I Had Seen CastlesBook - 1993
John Dante is seventeen when the Japanese bomb Pearl Harbor, and he wants to fight for his country. Then he falls in love with Ginny Burton, who is against all war, and his beliefs are suddenly and unexpectedly questioned. But rather than be judged a traitor or a coward, he enlists. "Rylant's story is heartbreaking in its honesty; her controlled, elegant prose lends poignancy to the story's emotional depth. A love story, a coming-of-age tale, a book with a passionate anti-war message, I Had Seen Castles is not to be missed."-- Publishers Weekly
