Purple Heart by Patricia McCormick

Matt wakes up in a hospital in Iraq and can't remember the events that brought him there.
As a lightweight investigation ensues, Matt tries to put together the pieces of his memory that he does have...but nothing makes sense. As Matt approaches the truth, he has to decide what he's ultimately going to do with the truth that he learns.

McCormick leads us on a realistic journey about choices we make, consequences, and maybe even karma - all with the backdrop of war and destruction. Fascinating, intense, and full of questions, readers will need to be ready to think about what is important.
