"
Peters is neither sentimental nor mawkish in his coming-of-age story, which is made complicated by his ambivalence over his strong homosexual feelings. It is a rare adult who can convey the anxieties of youth as vividly as Peters does. David Azzolina, "Library Journal"
"
Peters frank confessions and lush recollections paint a bittersweet portrait of a type of wartime experience that has seldom been explored. Kurt Chandler, "The Milwaukee Journal Sentinel"
