Do you like spy thrillers? If so, this nonfiction sketch of the birth of the atomic bomb is the place to see where the modern ones were born. The accounts are barebones, often understated, but the outline is all there from trying to stop Hitler from building his own atomic bomb by destroying the heavy water plant in Norway (Norwegian resistance, gliders, & sabotage) to troubled scientists dealing with the morality of their works. There is also a sketch of the politics behind many of the decisions regarding the creation, use, & finally crazy proliferation of this WMD. How & why FDR started the program, Truman continued it, & Japan caved in due to it. The main scientists are covered;heroic Oppenheimer who was later screwed by the country he loved, the spies (Hall & Fuchs), Heisenberg, & many others.

Just read Call Me Maria by Judith Ortiz Cofer. I liked that she uses poetry, proses, and prose to tell her story of moving to America from Puerto Rico.
