Dawn's Early Light by Nancy E. Krulik
Summer vacation. A time for celebration and fun, right? Well, Sarah has just one last day with her boyfriend Tim and is determined to make the most of it. Tim has enlisted and will be heading off to basic training tomorrow. And from there, who knows? Sarah only knows that this town, her life, will seem very empty after Tim leaves. But they have today. What could go wrong today? Well, you know when you start to think like that, something will go wrong. Sarah's father gets a phone call that Sarah's Marine brother is missing in the Middle East. The helicopter he was on has crashed. Sarah decides not to tell Tim about this and it becomes a very long, very emotional day for Sarah.
