Fritz has just arrived in a place so secret it isn't shown on any map. Even mentioning its name is forbidden. Mail is censored. Visitors are not allowed. A young boy moves to a remote spot in New Mexico, the site of a heavily guarded government laboratory, which stirs his curiosity. Exactly what are his father and the other scientists working on at the lab? With the help of Kathy, his seventh grade classmate, Fritz searches for clues, and evades bullies who have it in for him. He records each observation and rumor in a notebook he doesn't dare let out of his sight.

The Secret Project Notebook by Carolyn Reeder humorously and realistically weaves the history of the bomb project with the daily life of twelve-year-old Fritz, his family, and his friends. Of course, Fritz is interested in finding out what's really going on, and he keeps the information he and his friends collect in a secret notebook. He also gets into trouble. A prank he and some friends play on the mail censor goes a little too far, but that's nothing compared to what happens when he and a friend go horseback riding in a restricted area . . . . --Thereby Hangs a Tale
Along with a colorful cast of friends that includes Kathy, a smart but emotional girl whose brother is fighting in Europe; Manny, a Spanish-American boy who knows the local traditions; and Jacob, a Jewish boy whose family escaped the Nazis, Fritz discovers a number of clues that he carefully records. . . . Eventually, the truth about the Secret Project is revealed as the kids experience a unique and controversial piece of American history . . . --Children's Literature
