The Atomic City GirlsLarge Print - 2018
In November 1944, eighteen-year-old June Walker boards an unmarked bus, destined for a city that doesn't officially exist--Oak Ridge, Tennessee. There, June joins hundreds of other young girls operating massive machines whose purpose is never explained. They know they are helping to win the war, but must ask no questions and reveal nothing to outsiders. When the bombing of Hiroshima brings the truth about Oak Ridge into devastating focus, June must confront her ideals about loyalty, patriotism, and war itself.
