It was no accident that St. Ursula’s Girls Against the Atomic Bomb by Valerie Hurley “found” me in the library when another book by another author was not on the shelf. I am overjoyed to have noticed the cover of this book and that I read it because I really loved it.
This is a fictional story about a quirky young girl named Raine who marches to the beat of a different drummer and her relationship with her high school counselor who is wandering through life in a stupor of his own.
I found the writing of this book unique, powerful, and melodic. This is the type of book which requires slow reading as it contains numerous thoughts of significance. I highly recommend it.
