The Green Glass Sea
(back of book) It is 1943, and almost eleven-year-old Dewey Kerrigan is on a train to New Mexico, where she will live with her father. She doesn't know where in New Mexico, exactly; the corporal who took her to the station can't tell her. It's wartime, and so many things are secret.
Soon she arrives at a town that officially doesn't exist. It is called Los Alamos, and it is abuzz with activity, as famous scientists and mathematicians from all over America and Europe Dewey's father among them work on the biggest secret of all, something everyone calls only "the gadget."
Over the next few years, Dewey gets to know those scientists, starts working on her own mechanical projects, and locks horns with Suze Gordon, a budding artist who is as much of a misfit as she is. None of them not J. Robert Oppenheimer, the director of the Manhattan Project; not the mathematicians and scientists; and least of all, Dewey and Suze know how much "the gadget" is about to change their lives, and the world.
Ellen Klages's voice is remarkable, fresh, and without pretense. You will be swept away by The Green Glass Sea.
