By B. Case - Published on Amazon.com

Operation Homefront by Carolina B. Cooney. This book starts off by talking about Laura's and Langan's school. It also talks about who their friends are and how school is going for them.

In the middle of the book the Herrick's life gets turned around in many different ways. First the family finds out that their mom has been called by President Bush to go to Saudi Arabia along with her unit the 333rd. Mrs. Herrick has to go to war to fight the dictator Saddam Hussein. The family is very surprised to know that there mom is going across the world away from them to fight.

Before Mrs. Herrick goes to fight she has to go to her base in Connecticut for training. But one day the family gets a call from their mom. She is on the phone to tell them that her unit has been called to go to Saudi Arabia. The family then goes to where her base is for this big parade to tell their mom and others goodbye and good luck.

Once Mrs. Herrick leaves, the family goes home. Without a mom their life is very hard. Mrs. Herrick was always there for them making list of things to do around the house, and what to get at stores.
