Read from September 19 to October 28, 2012 , read count: 1

Fascinating and particularly good timing for me as I've just read Unbroken: A World War II Story of Survival, Resilience and Redemption and Code Name Verity. It makes me want to go back and reread The Green Glass Sea. However, I just do not seem to connect to non-fiction the same way I do with fiction. I loved reading about the science and the spy missions, but I had the hardest time convincing myself to pick this book back up each time I put it down. Excellent and I expect it has a good shot at several of the ALA awards come January (Newbery, Sibert, Printz and YALSA Non-Fiction all seem like possibilities to me).
