Bomb
Bomb: The Race to Build--and Steal--the World's Most Dangerous Weapon | Steve Sheinkin
9 posts | 4 read | 4 to read
In December of 1938, a chemist in a German laboratory made a shocking discovery: When placed next to radioactive material, a Uranium atom split in two. That simple discovery launched a scientific race that spanned 3 continents. In Great Britain and the United States, Soviet spies worked their way into the scientific community; in Norway, a commando force slipped behind enemy lines to attack German heavy-water manufacturing; and deep in the desert, one brilliant group of scientists was hidden away at a remote site at Los Alamos. This is the story of the plotting, the risk-taking, the deceit, and genius that created the world's most formidable weapon. This is the story of the atomic bomb. Bomb is a 2012 National Book Awards finalist for Young People's Literature. Bomb is a 2012 Washington Post Best Kids Books of the Year title. Bomb is a 2013 Newbery Honor book.

This is my second time reading this compelling look at the race to develop the nuclear bomb. Steve Sheinkin is a master and I can't recommend any of his books highly enough.

It's a lot easier to read outside when you know you've got a trusty herding dog watching the cat for you. Best reading buddies ever. #24in48 #readathon

I have an insatiable desire to go get milk and start writing messages all over the place.
