This title was one of the first available to download from our library when I quickly needed to come up with a book while having to spend several hours in Macomb, IL on a cold snowy Sunday waiting for Nik who attended a soccer camp there. Although it deals with war, it is not a typical war book as far as war action and violence is concerned. Instead it centers more on a mother son relationship and the ways to become a US military warrior. The title "Eleven Days" refers to the time that Jason, the son and Special Naval Teams member, is missing in action after a very secret mission. The book goes back and forth between the son's and mother's perspective as well as past and present, so by the time the eleven days are up, the reader understands the strong bond between mother and son and his motivation to give his all to his country.
