In a collaboration between Private First Class Jessica Lynch and a Pulitzer Prize-winning author, the young soldier tells of her life in Palestine, West Virginia and recounts the details of her capture, imprisonment, and dramatic rescue during the Iraq War.  The account allows us to gain new perspective on her rescue from an Iraqi hospital where she had been receiving care. Here, Lynch’s true heroism and above all, modesty, is allowed to emerge, as we're shown how she managed her physical recovery from her debilitating wounds and contended with the misinformation—both deliberate and unintended—surrounding her highly publicized rescue.
