This seuel to The Green Glass Sea is less lustrous but eually fascinating The end of that book prevented one from expecting any Happily Ever After but the reality of life for this scientific family post Los Alamos is sobering Mrs Gordon is haunted by what she and fellow scientists created whereas her husband sees the pursuit as science as a necessary goal regardless of repercussions because war and progress are connected Suze Gordon cares about Dewey but resents that Dewey seems to have in common with her mother than she does and refuses to call her a sister Dewey's love of science and machinery makes her even different from her peers than she already is but often helps her make unexpected friendships which is essential for this lonely child who still misses her scientist fatherAllusions to Wernher von Braun were startling as I think of him as the punch line in a Tom Lehrer song although I remember my mother telling me when I was child how he had left Germany and come to work for the US

It is 1946 World War II is over ended by the atomic bomb that Dewey Kerrigan's and Suze Gordon's scientist parents helped build Dewey's been living with the Gordons since before the war's end before her father died moving. This is a very nice seuel to The Green Glass Sea I loved being back in Dewey's world and finding out what happened next as she moved with the Gordon family to Alamogordo New Mexico World War II has just ended and Dewey and Suze are in the eighth grade Just as in The Green Glass Sea the characters and the setting all feel very real There were even a few shout outs to us in the present day This conversation between Dewey and Mrs Gordon made me chuckleDewey turned the gas burner on low and poured milk into the saucepan In Home Ec Mrs Winfield said by the time we're grown ups every kitchen will have an atomic powered oven that'll warm milk up in thirty seconds and pop popcorn in a paper bag She stirred in sugar and cocoa power Do you think that's trueAtomic powered No kiddo that's just science fiction Pie in the sky I did read about an oven that uses high freuency electromagnetic waves to produce heat but I doubt it'll ever be a common household object She took a sip of coffee Wouldn't that be nice though Instant dinnersI also chuckled over Dewey's conversation with her friend Owen about whether televisions were a reality yet Then later he comes running to tell her that he saw his first television in a shop in El Paso even though they didn't have any stations there yetAs I said this is a very nice seuel and I recommend it to anyone who read and liked The Green Glass Sea

White Sands Red MenaceSouth with them to Alamogordo New Mexico At the White Sands Missile Range Phil Gordon is working on rockets that will someday go to the moon; at home Terry Gordon is part of the scientists' movement against the Bomb Dewe. This seuel to The Green Glass Sea continues the stories of Dewey and Suze as they begin 8th grade in Alamogordo NM in 1946 Ellen Klages captures perfectly the growing tension and paranoia of Americans at that time while still creating compelling characters The book's told in a series of vignettes which is not normally a style I enjoy so it's a great testament to the writing and detailed authentic setting that I enjoyed it as much as I didIf you liked The Green Glass Sea pick this one upFull review on my blog
