Is anyone going to review (and :) read!) Geert Spillebeen's latest teen novel "Age 14"?

I liked it a lot; just amazing again. Just like his previous (translated) book, Kipling's Choice. (Best I ever read about war, anti-war.)

It's about WW.1, but in fact these (true) stories make me think about modern wars too...
