28. The Green Glass Sea

By: Ellen Klages
Level: J

Dewey is left a lot. Her mother left when she was small, her father left her with her grandmother when she was young, and now her grandmother has left her because she had a stroke. Therefore, when Dewey is told she will live with her father she is excited. Dewey travels to New Mexico where she lives on a secret base with her father during World War II. Suze misses her life in Berkeley, California. She tries to fit in with the other girls but somehow she is never accepted. She is just happy she is not an outcast like Screwy Dewey. Then the unthinkable happens. Dewey comes to live in her room. This novel is mostly about a friendship but the historical aspects of living at Los Alamos during the creation of the first atomic bomb are inescapable.
