9781681413402: Cold War on Maplewood Street

Joanna can't get over how her brother broke his promise to never leave like their dad did. Sam is thousands of miles away on a navy ship, and no matter how often he sends letters, Joanna refuses to write back. But then President Kennedy comes on TV with frightening news about Soviet missiles in Cuba - and that's where Sam's heading. Suddenly Joanna's worries about being home alone, building up the courage to talk to a cute boy, and not being allowed to go to the first boy-girl party in her grade don't seem so important. Maybe sometimes there are good reasons to break a promise. The tense timeline of the Cuban missile crisis unfolds alongside a powerful story about what it means to grow up in a world full of uncertainty.

About the Author:

Gayle Rosengren grew up in Chicago. She enjoyed school, was a voracious reader, and loved dogs and horses. She attended Knox College, where she majored in creative writing and was the editor of the literary magazine. Now Gayle writes full-time just outside of Madison, Wisconsin, where she lives with her husband, Don, and their slightly neurotic rescue dog, Fiona.

Amy Rubinate has been a professional actor and singer for over a decade. She has narrated and provided character voices for many interactive children’s books, toys and video games. Her one-woman cabaret shows have been performed in New York and San Francisco. Amy has a degree in Oral Interpretation of Literature, and won state and national awards for poetry reading.

Excerpt. Reprinted by permission. All rights reserved.:

Mom came through the door with a whoosh of cool air.

Joanna sprang up from the floor. “You’re home early! I’m so glad. Did you hear the president’s speech?”

Mom wrapped Joanna in a hug. “Yes, Jo, I heard.”

“Do-do you think there’s going to be a war?” It seemed impossible that Joanna was even asking such a question. War was something that happened in other countries, not here in the United States. Not in Chicago on Maplewood Street.

“Of course not,” Mom said, stroking Joanna’s curls.

“Gram thinks there might be,” Joanna said, her cheek still pressed into Mom’s coat. “She said that Sam will be right in the middle of it.”
