    " This was moving and historically fascinating and just in general really good. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Maryann Morran | 2/15/2014

    " Ellen Klages creates strong girl and woman characters in this young adult novel. The historical setting of 1946-1947 in the USA testing grounds of rockets, bombs/missiles(?), and the race for space rockets adds a unique dimension to the coming of age theme. "

    " This was the follow up to "The Green Glass Sea" which Sarah and I read last year. I really enjoyed it, even though it is a young adult book. I guess that is one of the joys of parenthood. You get to read your kids' books! "

    " Dewey and Suze follow history to New Mexico where Suze's Dad is working on rockets at White Sands. The Red Menace isn't much a part of the story, it's mostly about the relationship between the two girls and Suze's mother - which is difficult and loving. It's a good story about family set against an interesting part of US history. "

    " I personally hated this book. Green Glass Sea was one of the best historical fiction ever so when I heard about the sequel, I picked it up at the library. I then found out after 50 pages of reading it that Green Glass Sea was the type of book that should be a stand alone. Read Green Glass Sea, but dont waste your time with this. "

    " . . . maybe if she writes a third book in this series, there will be overt lesbian content. I'm hoping, anyway. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Anastasia | 1/5/2014

    " I love Ellen Klages' work. Her books are so well-written and solid-- and of course, I love the positive portrayals of women and interesting, well-rounded, non-stereotypical characters. "

    " Found this on our trip to NM when the balloon festival got rained out. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Julia | 12/29/2013

    " Okay...........I started liking Dewey at the end..... But not Ynez. She creeps me out. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Savvy Jones | 12/23/2013

    " The beginning is a lot worse than the middle "

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

    " This book, in my opinion, was almost as good as the first. I loved that she finally found her mother and could find closure. Dewey is an amazing character and her story has touched me. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Lacey | 10/20/2013

    " Meh. First book was amazing, this one disappointed "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Amy | 3/18/2013

    " Not as good as the first, but interesting. I never really thought about this time period before. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Caroline Scheper | 10/19/2012

    " A tail of growing up as a army brat in world war II. Two girls very different from anyone else struggle to fit in. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Janssen | 8/25/2012

    " Not nearly as good as The Green Glass Sea, but still a good read. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Rick Jones | 7/9/2012

    " Good story, great characters, but I found myself thinking, "they wouldn't think like that in 1946, even the most modern thinking person" a couple times too often. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Chad | 10/2/2011

    " Not as good as 'The Green Glass Sea" only because I know how hard it is to follow up on two fascinating characters which get developed in front of your eyes. Great insight into girl friendships which, I guess, I know nothing about but this made me feel like I could. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Ed | 9/23/2011

    " This is an excellent book for kids are right on the line between juvenile and young adult books. "

    " really 3.5...i just enjoyed the first one more. "

    " good sequal 2 a good book "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kirsti | 1/28/2011

    " I read this book because James checked it out for me at his elementary school library. Its set right after WWII....frankly I was surprised that it was at the elementary school library because there were a few bad words. The story line was interesting, but generally this wasn't my favorite. "

    " I thought it was a really good book. I suggest reading Green Glass Sea before it, it will help. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Ginny | 4/1/2010

    " I didn’t like this quite as much as The Green Glass Sea--mostly, I think, because I found the setting and historical context of the earlier book to be much more interesting. Still great writing and a good story--just not a favorite. "

    " a wonderful satisfying sequel to The Green Glass Sea. "
