Everybody Sees the Antsby A. S. King

When he was 7, Lucky Linderman's grandmother asked him to bring his grandfather home. Every night since, Lucky goes on missions to rescue his grandfather from a POW camp in Laos where he's been since the Vietnam War. During the day, Lucky battles his own problems with bullies and his parents. After another incident with a boy that bullies him, Lucky's mother takes him to visit his aunt and uncle, where he meets people who show him that he can't hide from reality, but he can change it. This is an uplifting coming of age story that manages to keep a sense of humor throughout.
