Year of the Bomb
Audience: 4th Grade - 7th Grade
What do FBI agents, nuclear bombs, and horror movies have in common? In 1950's Sierra Madre, CA, four boys get pulled into an exciting adventure when the horror movie Invasion of the Body Snatchers is being filmed in their hometown. Things get more complicated when they realize that undercover FBI agents are investigating people (including real-life scientist Richard Feynman) that they think might be involved in selling secrets to the Soviet Union. The boys try to help in the investigation, but discover that things are more complicated than they first appear. The main characters of the boys are fictional, but Invasion of the Body Snatchers was a real movie and most of the other characters are based on actual people.
