    Full Body Burden is a haunting work of narrative nonfiction about a young woman, Kristen Iversen, growing up in a small Colorado town close to Rocky Flats, a secret nuclear weapons plant once designated "the most contaminated site in America." It's the story of a childhood and adolescence in the shadow of the Cold War, in a landscape at once startlingly beautiful and - unknown to those who lived there - tainted with invisible yet deadly particles of plutonium.

    Carol says: "A story that no one else wanted to tell."
    "Who knew Nuclear Weapons were still killing?"

    What did you love best about Full Body Burden?

    The way she wove her life's story with the events elsewhere (elsewhere being literally down the road) at Rocky Flats.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Full Body Burden?

    The occasions when her father was trying to have a well dug and they were continually unable to succeed.


    What did you like about the performance? What did you dislike?

    That the author was able to convince how you clueless the neighbors (and ultimately most-affected) were by the ongoings at Rocky Flats.

    Didn't exactly like the way the story was "wrapped up."


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    How much do you trust your government?
