Interesting material for a non-fiction book. The trouble is that The Atomic City Girls bills itself as a novel. Granted, it could just be me, but boy howdy. . .I just did not connect with the characters. It was like they didn't care about themselves, so why should I? It didn't help that the writing was a bit simplistic as well. But on the up side, this story does portray what life was like living and working in a top-secret community.

If you have an interest in WWII, particularly in Y-12 or the Manhattan Project, then this would be a great read.
