Interesting Fact

Dewey and Suze have to live on an unofficial army base while their parents work hard on something they cannot know about and Mr. Kerrigan must go to Washington and leave Dewey with the Gordons and at first Dewey and Suze don't get along

After Dewey's father passes the gadget is finished and Dewey is to stay with the Gordon's now that Suze and Dewey have learned to get along and they have learned and grown from each other.

When they tested the nuclear bomb (The Gadget) it created a new mineral, making the area look like a green glass sea. This mineral is called Trinity.

Resolution, I think everyone is gonna say that like it or they would recomend it but in reality most of them didn't. Reading for school is something nobody exactly looks forward to and nobody really enjoys what they read for school. So to continue on my point, I didn't understand my book. The plot was all over the place, it challenged me and I liked, but at the same time don't see at all how it is a survival book. Two girls during World War Two living on an army base because their parents were making a nuclear bomb. They had no dangerous situations, the were surrounded by protection. I struggled finding why this was a survival book but if it wasn't put in this category as this "Survival Project" I would really enjoy it. I think how school categorizes books can change your deception of the book.
