Four years ago, race-car driver Tracey Bradshaw almost died in a horrific crash. Now, scarred inside and out, she's making a comeback, but her team is plagued by a series of accidents.

When the team leader dies under mysterious circumstances, former driver Mac Reynolds takes charge. The pair clash as Trace resents his high-handed attempts to control her, while Mac fears Trace's recklessness will get her killed. Neither can throttle back the desire that spins out of control whenever they touch. Trace lets herself be seduced when Mac convinces her he finds her beautiful despite her scars, and she begins to hope for more. But Mac knows he's not nearly good enough for Trace .

Don't miss the sequel, Danger Zone, coming in February 2012.

    " I am not sure if I'm ashamed or not to say that I learned an extraordinary amount about both history and science by reading this book. I'm not sure if I just didn't pay attention to this information when I got it in high school, or if we never actually talked about how one physically splits an atom. Seriously-- that process was news to me. Or if we ever learned about the relationship between the U.S. and the USSR during WWII. I didn't even realize that it was the USSR at that point. Maybe I sound like a total idiot, but I consider myself a pretty intelligent and well-educated person and I am amazed by the stuff I don't know. This book is a great read, interesting and informative. "

    " The Newbery Honor book, Bomb is a very well done non-fiction text for older elementary and middle school readers. Sheinkin's research for this book is incredible - including some primary sources and citing hundreds of quotes. His writing style makes history accessible to any reader - creating a page turning, thrilling story line. "

    " Did not want to put this down. Absolutely riveting narrative of the U.S.'s race to build the atomic bomb before Germany, to stop Germany's progress towards building one, to stop the Soviet Union from getting reports on the U.S.'s progress, and then to continue moving forward even when the war with German was over - towards defeating Japan. The reader gets to know Oppenheimer and the many scientists who worked at Los Alamos, as well as the sometimes anxious American spies who relayed information to the Soviet, and the courageous Norwegians who endeavored to sabotage the German heavy water factory which was key to building an atomic bomb. Clear descriptions of how scientists discovered the power of uranium to split atoms and the force that results (leading to the building of the atomic bomb) and then moved onto to fusion (hydrogen bomb). The author's note reveals extensive research and use of primary sources. The trick for classroom use would be to pair this text with close reading of primary sources and non-narrative texts on these topics - to extend and support understanding. Lots of content in the book that could lead to debate about ethical issues. "

    " After I read this book I realized how ignorant our youth truly is. We do not realize that at any second our entire world could be destroyed 5 times over and just how powerful our weapons are. I loved the portrayal of the events and while I learned a lot about history it was also very action packed and intense. The author did a great job recreating the events and I highly recommend it to anyone. "

    " Learned some things I didn't know, but the story felt very rushed. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Mandy Peterson | 1/17/2014

    " Wow! Crazy, interesting, and scary! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Tina H. | 1/17/2014

    " This SHOULD will the Siebert Award! It is fabulous. Who know how much "Natasha and Boris" was really going on behind the scenes. It moves like a spy thriller novel, but Sheinkin's documentation proves it was real! Great book. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Dave Hoff | 1/5/2014

    " Well written, easy to read. Very informative from the conception of the Atomic bomb, the use of the bomb in WWII, to the testing of the hydrogen bomb. Descriptive telling of the KGB's relentless spying and the final capture of the American traitors. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jenny | 12/21/2013

    " Wow! I could not put this down! Amazing story...and a totally new way to look at WWll and the Cold War. Loved loved loved it. No wonder this won a Newbery honor! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Ted Graham | 12/18/2013

    " Wow! A great story about such important moments in history. Amazing job weaving together history and science. And because it is technically a young adult book it is highly accessible and a quick read, yet it doesn't fail to male you think. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Giovanna Forsyth | 11/25/2013

    " I totally recommend this to any adult who has little patience for dry historic non-fiction about WWII or any kid with an interest in spies, bombs, physics, or adventure stories. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jennifer Nelson | 11/22/2013

    " Riveting account of the development of the nuclear weapons - it's fast paced, filled with mystery and intrigue, and keeps you on the edge of your seat. Wouldn't be hard to get a 13-year-old boy to read history books if they were all like this. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Karina | 8/18/2013

    " Bomb is a fascinating read about the development and building of the atomic bomb during World War 2. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Mallory Stewart | 8/12/2013

    " This was a very interesting informational book. Personally, I love history so I love how this told historical facts in a narrative. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Beverly Ray | 2/27/2013

    " Fabulously interesting look at the event that changed the world forever. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Laeroport | 1/30/2013

    " I don't read much non-fiction, but this one read like a novel and was hard to put down. No wonder it was a Newbery Honor Book for this year.... "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Paige Y. | 8/8/2012

    " Fabulous piece of nonfiction about the creation of the atomic bomb and the (successful) attempt by the Soviets to steal its secrets. Wonderful for classroom use and a great way to start my reading for the year! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Nicole Ozanich | 6/15/2012

    " The topic of this book is really interesting, but since I'm mostly a fiction reader, is was a bit tough to get through. The most confusing part was keeping track of all the American and foreign scientists and spies. Wow, it's a powerful account though! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Fred Kohn | 2/8/2012

    " I have nothing bad to say about this book. Sheinkin takes the oft told tale of the building of the first nuclear weapons and focuses on the espionage factor. This simple change of perspective makes an old story new again. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Mary MacLeay | 11/6/2011

    " wow. Reads like a good mystery. This has the well-known as well as the not so well-known players in the development of the atomic bomb. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Lynne | 8/20/2011

    " Engorssing romantic adventure. Hunky hero. Kick butt heroine. I highly recommend this book! "
