Riassunto: Girls are mysteriously vanishing in suburbia in 1960s suburbia. No one but teenage detective Barbara Scott can rescue them. Discerning how Barbara can succeed is aspiring author, Victoria, age 6, first grader at a brand new elementary school, avid teen mystery fiction and Barbie doll fan. Victoria is determined to make her character, Barbara Kay Scott, a credit to the teen detective fiction genre while also making sense of the real world around her. It is America, 1963. Cultural institutions slip off the foundation of faith upon which this society was built. Murder, evil, scandal and prejudice shatter society. Victoria strives to control her book as she cannot hope to shape reality. She knows eventually she must emerge in this society, able to cope while remaining true to herself. As she contrives a satisfactory ending to her story, real life provides no neat endings only consequences of the journey which will endure the rest of her life.

Review:

The book was a very insightful look into the mind of a child during the times of JFK and integration. From what I have read over the years, you only ever read the point of view of the adults, never the children. I enjoyed it a lot and it was very well written.

This is a book for readers interested in historical fiction set in the 1960s. It would also interest students of sociology and the Civil Rights era. From the point of view of a grade school child, it also contains a complete mystery written by a child in the 60s. It is complex and engrossing also dealing with assimilation of Italian Americans in the middle of the Civil Rights struggle. I would recommend it to readers interested in any of those subjects and in history in general.

A museum set piece with a mystical, mysterious twist. Set in the 1960's this is a must read for those who love history. Complete with Kennedy's assasination, and it's effect on the main characters in the story. The main character writes a complete mystery throughout as an interesting escapism from a child's point of view. The author does a good job of painting a realistic portrait of the social landscape from the period along with intreging characters.

Descrizione libro Ruskras Corner. Paperback. Condizione libro: New. Paperback. 360 pages. Dimensions: 9.0in. x 6.0in. x 0.8in.Girls are mysteriously vanishing in suburbia and it is up to amateur teenage detective Barbara Scott to rescue them. Trying to figure out how Barbara can do this alone is Barbaras creator, aspiring author Victoria Grasso, age 6. Victoria is determined to make Barbara a credit to the teenage detective fiction genre. She fights skepticism, indifference and illogical demands as she attempts to create consistent characters and an understandable plot for her book while also making sense of the intricate and prosperous world around her. It is America, 1963. While ostensibly promoting justice and peace, cultural institutions have begun quietly slipping off the foundation of faith upon which this thriving society was built. Suddenly this process emerges from the shadows, emboldened by violence. Past inequities are swept away only to be replace by emerging intolerance disguised as progress. New, untested values displace sacred ideals held since the country began. Murder, scandal, adultery, prejudice, intolerance and abuse are but a few of the evils that disrupt and shatter this sparkling world. Hope for future survival may be found by combining enduring truths from the past with blessings yet to come. Yet fear of the unknown dominates and may yet vanquish all harmony as the restructure of the culture overwhelms many of the adults entrusted with leadership, result in upheaval and chaos. Victoria strives to control her book as she cannot hope to shape reality. She knows eventually she must emerge in this society, able to cope, even thrive, while remaining true to herself. This item ships from multiple locations. Your book may arrive from Roseburg,OR, La Vergne,TN. Paperback. Codice libro della libreria 9781942542001
