Why read it?
1 author picked When You Are Away as one of their favorite books. Why do they recommend it?
Written for grade school ages, this book lets children (military or not!) peek into a military family’s experiences as they struggle with the changes that happen when a parent is deployed. The children learn that nothing stays the same when a parent is away, except the way they love each other. I appreciate that the family is African-American.
