A  Truly Nice Relationship

When Alice Ozma was in the fourth grade, her family was going through a rough patch.
Her parents had just split up, and her older sister had recently left for college. Ozma was suddenly spending a lot more time alone with her dad, Jim Brozina, an elementary school librarian. So Ozma and her father made a pledge: to read together every single night for 100 days.  But after 100 days, they just kept going. Their streak ultimately lasted 3,218 days — spanning from Ozma's fourth-grade year to her first day of college.
Their commitment to reading and to each other are the subject of Ozma's
debut book,
