Almost Forever by Maria Testa (Homeschool subjects covered: 20th Century American History)
When the six-year-old narrator of this lyric novel watches her father march off to serve a year in the U.S. Army Medical Corps, a year seems like a very long time. A year is a long time when you're waiting for letters, waiting for word. A year is almost forever when you're wondering . . .and forgetting. Maria Testa has written a taut and tender American ballad of one family's experience in the year 1968 -- an ultimately heartening novel that has much to say to a new generation of readers.
