Reviews
"Immersive . . . An expertly crafted, evocative time capsule."
--Publishers Weekly, starred review

"Elliott both fills in the historical background--aided by Behm's mixing of period photos, contemporary news, and pop-culture notes--and crafts a tale of rising tensions that culminates in a suspenseful climax . . . A sensitive exploration of cogent themes in a richly detailed historical setting."
--Kirkus Reviews, starred review

"Elliott's latest is set a year prior to the unexpected rise of the Berlin Wall, incorporating all kinds of historical context, including science, world events, politics, and entertainment, through pictures at the beginning of each chapter, allowing readers to immerse themselves in the period. The portrayal of events is first-rate, creating a poignant yet lighthearted read."
