My Brother Johnny

by Francesco D'Adamo, translated by Sian Williams - £6.99  Aurora Metro Publications (2007)
paperback    ISBN 13: 9780955156632 | ISBN 10: 0955156637

Johnny, the local hero, has been flying bombing missions on the war Over There. When he suddenly returns home, broken, a shadow of his former self, people want to know the reason why.
 
Piece by piece, his story emerges through the eyes of his younger sister, Lin, who's 14 (almost) and a bit of a punk. Bored with school and village life, her humdrum world is overturned when her brother sets up an anti-war protest in the local square that splits the community.
