    SUMMARY:  It’s 1943, and 11-year-old Dewey Kerrigan is traveling west to live with her scientist father. No one, neither her father nor the military guardians who accompany her, will tell her exactly where she is going. When she reaches Los Alamos, New Mexico, she learns why: her father is working on a top-secret government program.  What could it be?  How will it change the world?  What will this experience do for Dewey?
