Literature Circle Book: "It is 1943, and 11-year-old Dewey Kerrigan is traveling west on a train to live with her scientist father; but no one, not her father nor the military guardians who accompany her, will tell her exactly where he is. When she reaches Los Alamos, New Mexico, she learns why: he's working on a top secret government program. Over the next few years, Dewey gets to know eminent scientists, starts tinkering with her own mechanical projects, becomes friends with a budding artist who is as much of a misfit as she is; and, all the while, has no idea how the Manhattan Project is about to change the world. This book's fresh prose and fascinating subject are like nothing you've read before." (Goodreads Review)

Bernice Hello Panagiota!

How did you enjoy the book? After reading it, I really appreciated how it focused on one family's life during this time during the war, especially since it was geared towards a little girl's experience versus one of a soldier like other books written. It definitely gave a different perspective from other books about WW2.
