Green Glass Sea
Audience: 6th Grade - 8th Grade
It's 1943 and the scientists of the United States are desperately trying to come up with a 'gadget' that will help defeat its enemies and end World War II. Eleven-year-old Dewey Kerrigan is the daughter of one of these scientists who are sequestered in a place no one has even heard of ' Los Alamos, New Mexico. Motherless Dewey does not fit in with the other children there, not only because of a crippled foot, but also because she loves to invent things. When her father is called to Washington, she is offered a temporary home with one of his co-workers. This family has a daughter in Dewey's class who hates the idea of sharing her room and her family with such a freak. This is a story of friendship, love, and loss set upon the dramatic background of a world about to be changed.
