This is a unique story written in letters from Lizzie to her mother, who is an American soldier fighting in the Middle East. Lizzie is coping with her mother leaving and not really understanding the distance that is between them. Lizzie, like many children with parents in who are soldiers, misses her mom, hopes that she is safe, and that she will come home soon.

I hated the cover on this one so much that I almost didn't read it, but I'm glad I did. While I don't like Paterson's illustrations of people, McElroy's text has a lot of power for letters (from a girl to her mother who is serving overseas) that never break their childlike voice and Paterson's maps and some of the layout really add to what's going on. I also wish that the first page of the book wasn't a lengthy letter to adults written by Senator Dianne Feinstein, as it's completely unnecessary and off-putting. Even so, this is the best book on this subject that I'm aware of.
