Summary Kiki's father, a doctor, is always putting himself in danger by going off to faraway war zones. No matter how much she tries to convince him not to go, Kiki can't persuade him to stay. When her father actually does go missing, and as her mother and grandmother get more and more upset, Kiki begins to feel that it's up to her to save him. A powerful, sad, yet funny book about what to do when something you've always feared becomes all too real
