Description of this Book

Third and final instalment of this critically acclaimed young adult alternative historical series that began with Front Lines and Silver Stars It's 1944, and it feels to everyone like the war will never end. Rio Richlin, Frangie Marr and Rainie Shulterman have all received accolades, been 'heroes', earned promotion - in short, they've all done 'enough' to allow them to leave this nightmare and go home. But they don't. D-Day, June 6th 1944. On that day, many still doubted the American soldier. By June 7th no one did. Michael Grant has lived an exciting, fast-paced life. He moved in with his wife Katherine after only twenty-four hours. He has co-authored over 160 books for teenagers, young adults and adults, including the bestselling GONE series, but promises that everything he writes is like nothing you've ever read before. He considers the Front Lines series to be his best work yet.

Author's Bio

Michael Grant is the evil genius of Young Adult Fiction. Among his biggest fans is Stephen King who called the GONE series `A driving, torrential narrative'. Michael's life has been similarly driving and torrential. He's lived in almost 50 different homes in 14 US states, and moved in with his wife, Katherine Applegate, after knowing her less than 24 hours. Michael and Katherine were running their own cleaning business when they were working on their first book. Since trading in his marigolds, Michael has now written around 150 books (with Katherine, as himself, under pseudonyms and as a ghostwriter). He now lives in the San Francisco Bay area. The GONE series has sold over a million copies in the UK alone, meaning that Michael has terrified a lot of people. Something he particularly likes to do.
