Countdown by Deborah Wiles

I listened to the audio version of this book and loved it. This historical novel takes place in 1962 in suburban Maryland. 11-year-old adolescent Franny is realizing how scary the relations are between the United States and Russia. Wiles brings the history of the times alive with the historical events taking place around Franny's young life. This novel was wonderfully written and lends itself to becoming a well-loved read aloud. 5 stars
