Lucky Linderman doesn't want to wake up.

Lucky Linderman has been the target of Nader McMillan's relentless bullying for as long as he can remember. But he has a secret one that helps him wade through the mundane torture of his life. In his dreams, Lucky escapes to the war-ridden jungles of Laos, where his grandfather, who never came home from the Vietnam War, is still trapped. There, Lucky can be a real man and maybe even a hero. But how long can he keep hiding in his dreams before reality forces its way inside? Printz Honor recipient A.S. King's boldly original writing shines in this powerful novel about learning to cope with the shrapnel life throws at you and taking a stand against it.

    " Really showcases how often kids get ignored about the really important stuff. Shows how adults often just want a situation to be over and deal with it superficially, just so they can justify saying they dealt with it. Pretty much the only part of the book I disliked were the dreams; especially the fact that he brought back physical objects from them. I know, I know, the dreams are to show that he wants to escape from his life, but they really interrupted the narrative. And if you're writing a realistic fiction book, please don't drop in tidbits of impossible things happening. But really, this was a pretty good book. "

    " This book focuses on the main theme of bullying, while throwing in bits of nostalgia regarding the Vietnam War, where the main character's grandfather became MIA. It's a timeless tale about finding inner-strength, balancing humor and wit to deal with some hefty issues. Great read! "

    " This would be a perfectly fine work if I wasn't comparing it to A.S. King's last release. He's still got some real gems of revelation dropping out of his character's mouth though and the plotline and characters are all fully fleshed. I think the wincing that occured on my part was intentional on the part of the author. You really just want to give Lucky a big hug and beat the ever loving snot out of Nader before the book's half over. "

    " A.S. King has produced another fine piece of writing. Personally I still enjoyed Vera much better but Everybody Sees the Ants was good. Basically it is about bullying and what it does to ones self-respect and how to cope and over come it. This is a book that could be read by just about anyone and they would be able to relate to it in some way. Defiantly one I will be recommending for my teen readers at the library, as well as some adults. "
