100 Days and 99 Nights by Alan Madison

In a timely, but not politically charged way, author Alan Madison looks at the way a family copes with having a parent away on a 100 day, 99 night military tour of duty through the eyes of the very loveable Esmerelda (Esme) Swishback McCarthur. Esme wants to be good while her dad is away. In fact, she feels like its her duty to be good. But being good can be hard, especially if you have a little brother like Ike. By following Esmes story, as she awaits her fathers return, readers will see how heroism can translate to every member of a family. Aside from the military families that this book serves, readers who wonder what it would be like if their mother, father, brother or sister was sent away will relate to Esmes quiet strength and candour and will understand her worry about what could happen. This story has the potential to speak to readers on a personal level and to turn a concept that seems so hard to grasp - war - into one that feels much more personal.
