In this deeply affecting memoir, Alice Ozma tells the story of her relationship with the remarkable man who raised her through the words they shared and the spaces in between. When Alice Ozma was in fourth grade, she and her single father - a beloved elementary school librarian - made a promise to read aloud together for 100 consecutive nights. Upon reaching their goal they celebrated over pancakes, but it was clear that neither wanted to stop. They decided to continue The Streak for as long as they could - until the day, a remarkable eight years later, Alice entered college.
