    " I didn't like the book really. I like a book that could keep me reading this book didn't really do that. I'm more of an action person. To me it was a sleeper. Its about living in the war the danger of being bombed was scary. It's not a book that i would like to read. So if you the opposite of me then i would recombined it if not then i would not. "

    " This was an excellent book - after finishing it I spent hours on the internet researching this time period/subject. The historical setting, characters, etc. were so interesting. It's one of those that get better the more I think about it. Definitely recommended! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Stacy Dawn Leavitt | 12/21/2013

    " Great book for middle schoolers to learn about the atomic bomb. A little to simple for an adult reader. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Alexis | 12/18/2013

    " The stories of Suze and Dewey, who at first seem so different but soon find out they are more similar then they think. WONDERFUL BOOK!!!!!! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jan | 11/26/2013

    " The book is historical fiction at its best. One experiences the heat and isolation and angst along with Dewey and Suze and learn a lot about the times. It was an engrossing read and is an excellent book for all ages. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Brenbren13 | 11/24/2013

    " I was really slow for me. It's about war and the atomic bomb. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Carolien | 11/22/2013

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Lady Susan | 9/10/2013

    " Really great historical fiction. It is interesting to read a take on Los Alamos and The Manhattan Project from a child's perspective. That being said, it can also be frustrating because you don't get any of the details. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Miao | 8/25/2013

    " A nice book that builds around a serious subject of the atomic bomb and also, at the same time, teen meanness. Entertaining reading. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Heidi W. | 7/30/2013

    " I LOVED THIS BOOK!! It was sooooo good. It was really interesting how Dewey and Suze became friends in the end. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Dena | 12/17/2012

    " Historical fiction certainly can be set within the last 70 years! This one's for WWII buffs, opponents of nuclear power, and readers who enjoy a good story about growing up. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Sarah | 5/6/2011

    " Once you get into this book, it's really great. Two girls come to live in Los Alamos, and form a friendship. This story told how you can find a friend in the least likely of places, and how the war effected the children of the scientists. "

    " a beautiful storry of life during WWII. Somehow it could have been a sister in my family. The wonder, the concern, the changes that affected so many of us. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Sarah | 4/13/2011

    " great book....takes you back to the time when u were a kid. Ellen Klages smartly injects history into the book as well, a period in time thats important to Americans....not too climaxic, but an overall good book "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 704yaroslav | 3/2/2011

    " Very great book, i enjoyed reading it and I highly recommend reading this book, at first it was just interesting to read, but about halfway through the story it got a lot more suspenseful and even pretty sad after there was death, and happiness after a friendship was gained. Great book. "
