Cody you are right about  Gary Paulson.  He writes great coming of age Young adult  fiction.  He has won the Newbery Honor award three times for his books .  He has over 200 books to his credit. 

The title Soldier's Heart comes from another name for DaCosta Syndrome  an anxiety disorder first observed during the Civil War .  The soldier would have all the signs of Heart disease but nothing would be physically wrong with them.   Related to modern day PTSD .
