About the Book Criminal activity, a forbidden girlfriend, a joyride—they could spell disaster for 16-year-old Kilian Barker. Then he accidentally meets Harry Goddard, a World War II veteran, living in a nursing home. What can some ancient dude teach a streetwise foster kid? Not much, according to Kilian. But those medals in the display case outside Harry's room—they could be worth something. A coming-of-age story set in Canada and Afghanistan, interwoven with true stories of World War II and life in Kingston, Ontario.
