Book title to this book about a badly burned soldier

I read a book several years ago in middle school about a girl that falls in love with a young soldier (ww2 soldier if I remember correctly) that was badly burned and disfigured in the war. I think one of the character's last name was Metcalf. I want to say the girl was volunteering in the hospital and that's how she met the soldier. He was sitting on a bench I think when she first met him. It was so long ago that I can remember very little of the book. Does anyone know the title to this book? Thank you.

Individual's survival without a society?

Which books (or movies) have a similar survivalism theme as 'I am Legend' by Richard Matheson? The specific theme I'm looking for: one person, fighting to hold on to their sanity without the support of any other people. Not necessarily postapocalyptic, just a person struggling to maintain their humanity despite limited/no other human contact.

Bookfiler: kids in drains kill people

Bookfilter: When I was a kid, I read a book or series of books about a lost tribe of children who lived in sewers, were at war with the adult world (or parts thereof) and made effective use of slingshots. There was one scene in particular I recall in which someone - a baddie presumably - was killed with a shovel that had been slowly sharpened through digging in silt for something. There might have been something odd about the children's ears as well. I know it's vague, but if I could remember more I probably would have found it without having to ask the hive mind!
