Eleven-year-old Jasmyn gets a different perspective on life when her mother is sent to Saudi Arabia at the beginning of the Persian Gulf War, leaving her and her baby half brother behind in Maine in the care of her Mother's boyfriend. Jasmyn's single mother, an Army reservist, is sent to Saudi Arabia at the start of the Persian Gulf War. Jas soon finds herself in charge of running the house and caring for her baby brother. Jas can't understand why her mother has a job that forces her to leave her children. This novel portrays the situation faced by thousands of single parents who served in Operation Desert Storm. Jasmyn is horrified when her single mother is called up from the army reserves to go to Saudi Arabia at the start of the Persian Gulf War. Her mother is gone two days later, leaving Jasmyn with Jake, her mother's boyfriend and the father of her baby half brother. Suddenly Jas finds herself in charge of running the house and caring for the baby. Now there's no time for practice with her school basketball team.
