Alice Bliss is a 15-year-old girl who is trying to deal with her father's deployment to Iraq. She picks up all the slack when her mom can't handle things at home, while at the same time she is missing her father terribly. This book is written so honestly and so emotionally that it seems like a true life story, not fiction. I could easily sympathize with both Alice and her mother all the way through the story. As I was finishing this book, I saw the story in the news about the recent helicopter crash that killed 20+ Navy SEALS. I couldn't help but think that one of them may have a daughter like Alice, and it brought tears to my eyes. This book has given me a new outlook and more respect for the U.S. Military and their families.
