This is considered Young Adult fiction though it could easily pass as Adult fiction. This is incredibly well written. The POV is third person omniscient. That is hard to write. The writer doesn't overdo it and the reader knows who's POV is being discussed. The main character Alice is likeable and truly misses her father (who is a solider in Iraq). The surrounding characters are good people. What I especially liked about this book is that the characters are believable and normal - they are all dealing with Matt Bliss going to war. The only character I had issues with was the mother - Angie Bliss. She seemed weak and self-centered. Highly recommend this book for anyone who has family or friends in war.
