Grades 6-8. The Blackbird Girls by Anne Blankman. One morning, neighbors Valentina and Oksana wake up to an angry red sky. A reactor at the nuclear power plant where their fathers work--Chernobyl--has exploded. Before they know it, the two girls, who've always been enemies, find themselves on a train bound for Leningrad to stay with Valentina's estranged grandmother. A copy of the book (yours to keep) is reserved when you register. Pick up your copy of the book at the Youth Desk.
