This first novel from Nebula Award-winning short story writer Ellen Klages was picked as a Junior Library Guild selection and named a Book Sense Number-One Children's Pick. It follows a young girl named Dewey, whose father is part of a super-secret project in 1943 Los Alamos. Dewey, a gifted scientist herself, slowly realizes the implications of "the gadget" her father is working on. She and Suze, another Los Alamos child, find comfort in each other's friendship.
Ellen Klages’ debut novel, The Green Glass Sea, was lavished with praise, including the Scott O’Dell Award for historical fiction. This sequel continues the story of science enthusiast Dewey Kerrigan, now living with her friend Suze’s family in Alamogordo, New Mexico, after her father’s death. Against the backdrop of America’s quest for the moon, Dewey tries to find her place in the world.
