Plot/Idea: Worthington creates a strong shout out to any child who has grown up with a parent in the military—and who has had to move schools often. She realistically portrays the challenges and losses experienced along the way as well as the humor she finds with the new people she meets.

Prose: The writing is even and clear. Readers will gain a genuine sense for each location the family lives and the locals they get to know in the process. 

Originality: Focusing on the military experience from a youthful person’s point of view is refreshing. Worthington was able to see the world at a young age, even though her focus is mainly on the social aspect of her situation.

Character/Execution: The author gives readers some foreshadowing regarding her heritage, which is eventually sorted out later in the book. Her reflection about her circumstances is honest and thoughtful, and readers can fully understand the issues that come with being nomadic in a military family.
