Countdown

  • AGES 8 - 12 
  • Genre Historical Fiction
From National Book Award finalist Deborah Wiles, the remarkable story of one unforgettable girl, amid the sights and sounds of the early 1960s.
It's 1962, and it seems everyone is living in fear. Eleven-year-old Franny Chapman lives with her family in Washington, D.C., and can feel the fear of the nation in the days surrounding the Cuban Missile Crisis. Amid the pervading 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 life-changing week.
From award-winning author Deborah Wiles, this first entry in the Sixties Trilogy tells the story of one girl with insight, warmth, and hope, set against the backdrop of one of the most politically and culturally defining periods in history.
