2017 Nomination (not yet selected): 

Franny Chapman is growing up in the middle of the Cold War. She has the typical problems of an eleven year old but she also has to deal with her sister's Ellen mysterious activities, her Uncle Ott's condition, and of course, the fear that any day a nuclear bomb might fall. Emma Galvin infuses Franny with a voice full of the angst of a girl on the cusp of adolescence and with the fear of disaster. The stiking audio documentary sequences which are very effectively used more than make up for the lack of photographs included in the print version. This is the first of a trilogy and it is a real audio treat. Ages 10+ Maria E. Gentle
