I think that The Green Glass Sea was an excellent book. With enough facts and enough drama, it is my favorite Historical Fiction book. The book takes place mainly is Los Alamos, New Mexico, in a place called "The Hill". During World War II, Dewey Kerrigan is sent there to live with her father, who was working on "The Gadget".

She soon meets Suze Gorman, a girl her age. They soon bond together. Their friendship expands at the end of the book, and in the sequel, White Sands, Red Menace.

The book sucked me in, and made me feel like I really lived in 1945. I was crying at some parts, and laughing my head off at others. If you truly want to experience a great book, read The Green Glass Sea, by Ellen Klages.

Oh, I love when a book does that.
It makes you feel as if you're part of the story.
Too bad I'm not a historical fiction person.
Great review, probably great book!
