Four starred reviews greeted this new, groundbreaking classic from Deborah Wiles! It's 1962, and it seems everyone is living in fear. Eleven-year-old Franny Chapman lives with her family in Washington, DC, during the days surrounding the Cuban Missile Crisis. Amidst the pervasive threat of nuclear war, Franny must face the tension between herself and her younger brother, figure out where she fits in with her family, and look beyond outward appearances. For Franny, as for all Americans, it's going to be a formative year.
