In 1988, two years before the end of the Cold War, the US and the USSR held the world at nuclear ransom. Meanwhile, grassroots organizing is bringing American and Soviet youth together in missions of peace. What can a group of teenagers, on a raft on Siberia's Ob River, hope to accomplish? With sensitivity and humor, SIBERIAK tells the tale of one young person's journey of discovery and cultural immersion. A lovely coming-of-age story that takes place during a unique historical moment.

  • PUBLISHERS WEEKLY calls Siberiak: My Cold War Adventure on the River Ob "...a kaleidoscope of impressions and perceptions,...facinating."
  • Peace Activist Cindy Sheehan reviews Siberiak: "...one young peace activist's story of doing something many Americans don't get a chance to do, or don't even want to do: go to another culture to observe first hand how the 'enemy' really lives. Jaeckel tells her tale in a way that is fun, informative and inspiring."

Review:

  • "This graphic novel-format memoir explores a young woman's peacekeeping ...along Siberia's Ob River in 1988.... the openness of the Russian people Jenny's group encountered is instantly clear in the depiction of the residents' faces....[and] a raw feeling of authentic isolation pervades the novel as Jaeckel frequently indicates the ways in which her social awkwardness limited her own experiences. Teens might not know much about the Soviet/American relations at the time, but...they'll be...able to absorb what an unusual trip this was" -Bulletin For the Center of Children's Books
