THREE friends, TWO secrets, ONE lie, and the summer that changed their lives.

The world is ripe for destruction in 1953. The Korean War drags on and the Rosenbergs are executed as spies. Senator Joseph McCarthy convinces the country communists are infiltrating the government, and the threat of nuclear war festered in the collective consciousness of the nation.

While the nation worries about communist bombs, sixteen-year-old Bernadette Vaughn holds court in the family bomb shelter, finagling a way to read Kinsey's groundbreaking work on human sexuality. She obsesses about boys and big city life. 


Her best friend, Faith McNulty is a devout Catholic who dreams of staying in their small town, marrying Allen Hanlon, and raising a family. Their awkward and unattractive friend, Octavia Mansfield doesn't have room in her life for boys, dreams, or God. She spends most of her young life caring for her severely disabled brother.

Their conversations about what each of them would do if the end of the world were imminent become the catalyst for a prank that spins wildly beyond control and draws in an entire town.

Alexander Tallman enjoys life to the fullest. He has his own advertising company, a few girlfriends and a perfect wife, who is so naive she doesn't even notice her husband's multiple affairs. 


But, one day, Alexander meets Karen. The woman is five years older than he and she wants to marry Alexander instead of letting him go, as others did. Alexander finds a reason for leaving that he thinks is good enough for Karen - his wife is pregnant. 

When Karen finds out that Alexander wants to break off their relationship she takes the reins of fate into her own hands. She decides to fight for her love no matter what - but everything turns out differently than she had expected and she becomes a marionette in somebody else's game.

The Far Horizon, by Patty Jansen. (Still free?)

Here's a humor-laced Sci-Fi book - appropriate for younger readers as well as adults.

From the author: "I wrote this book with parents reading to their children in mind. While the subject matter can be understood by children, I've aimed - much in the way popular animated movies do - to include remarks that hint at a deeper meaning so that adults who read this book will enjoy it was well."

"While obviously aimed at a younger audience, even as an adult I found this book to be excellent." - B. J. Baye

"The space station setting is accurate and rich, and portrayed quite well through the story, without pages and pages of exposition to describe everything." - Marlene Dotterer 


Of all the things ten-year-old Cory Wilson expects to do when he moves to Midway Space Station, saving aliens from humans isn't one. 


An important conference is about to start at the station, not usually the sort of thing kids care about, not even when the conference is between humans and aliens, and half your family is alien. 

However, when bullies tease Cory, he ends up in a prohibited area where he overhears some men planning to plant a bomb at the conference. Because the terrorists hide their messages in computer games, no one believes Cory, not even his father, the station director. Kids at school think he's crazy, some even think aliens should be bombed. 

Cory's teacher, one of the terrorists, locks Cory in a classroom as the conference begins. Can he get out in time? And if he does, will anyone listen?


178 pages, with a 4.3-star rating from 10 reviews.
