Background Information

When teen hormones and culture shock collide: Ken's War available now

Itís 1965 and Ken Paderson is raring to get his driverís license so he can escape his parentsí tight control. But his world turns upside down when Ken and his dad are whisked off to a remote army outpost in Japan.

Sucker-punched by culture clash at every turn, Ken expects no help from his father whoís fighting to keep his army commission. As far as Ken is concerned, the army made a huge mistake assigning his dad to flush out criminals who are stealing U.S. Army medical supplies, which mysteriously appear on the black market. Ken just wants to get off this island, and go home. So for the time being, he strikes up a friendship with a quirky soldier who seems more Japanese than American, and can show him the ropes.

Ken has guts and good intentions, but itís his burning desire to fight off a gang of Japanese boys that have been following him that compels him to steal, steal from the very people who care about him, so he can make money for martial arts lessons.

Against his fatherís will, Ken takes his girlfriend Yasuko to a festival. After spending the night trapped in a cave by a raging typhoon, they come home together. There a different, but equally life-changing typhoon has been brewing. His father, a unit of Military Police, and the leader of the crime ring are waiting for him.

How can Ken win his war against those multiple foes?

A school librarian and mother of two boys recommends Ken's War.

Ken's War
As the conflict in Viet Nam escalates, army brat Ken and his hot-headed dad are suddenly deployed to a dinky post in Japan. Culture clash is just one of the many sucker punches that knocks Kenís world upside down. He struggles as his assumptions about friends and enemies, loyalty and betrayal, and love and manipulation are fractured. An army misfit, a Japanese girl and a martial arts master, play indelible roles in Kenís rocky journey he starts as a Pennsylvania boy itching to get his driverís license, and ends as a young man who stands heads above some and shoulder-to-shoulder with his father.
